1.1 Many buyers and sellers
1.2 Firms are price takers
1.3 homogenous product
1.4 perfect knowledge of product/service
1.5 perfect mobility of factors
1.6 readily available information
1.7 No barriers to entry or exit
2 Super-normal profit in short term only

3.2 Dynamic - R+D that lowers the LRAC

4.1 Cannot price below AVC curve, else it shuts down immediately
