Competition Day At 6 o’clock in the morning Skyland’s alarm clock goes off and her eyes open wide. She springs up with excitement knowing that Competition Day is officially here. She gets out of bed and starts preparing for her amusing, lively day. As Skyland starts packing she starts getting aroused to compete with her team at the district meet. With the fans watching and everyone cheering them on, she begins dreaming about how competing will feel like. She eats a healthy, energizing breakfast and makes sure she has everything packed without leaving anything behind. Her family wishes her luck and says they will see her soon as she starts walking out the door. During the drive to the competition, Skyland is getting pumped and focused by listening to music that makes her feel happy and charged. She clears her mind and allows peace to enter it with no negativity. Her and her teammates meet up at the school to drive together to the meet. Everyone is enthusiastic and ready to take on the other teams. The coach is running frantically around making sure everyone has what they need. Parents are kissing their children and telling them good luck. The team gathers on the bus and they are off to the meet. On the bus everyone is singing and bonding to let go all of their nervous butterflies. When they make it to the competition, Skyland puts her game face on while walking into the building. It is now time to get ready and get serious. After walking in the building, the team finds their section to get ready in. Everyone takes a seat a starts putting on their uniforms and preparing their appearance for the day. Skyland applies her golden mineral eye shadow and piercing black eye liner to her face along with a deep red lipstick to her lips. She then moves on to her hair making sure every piece is laid down perfectly. Skyland stays focused to reduce mistakes and keep everything perfect. She double checks everything she has on making sure there are no flaws, her uniform is clean, her nails are cut down, and her hair bow is applied straight up. She puts on her cheer shoes and now she is ready. As the team walks into the performance area they do not watch any other teams because they do not want to get down on themselves. They cheer other teams on and off the mat and focus on keeping each other spirits up. Everyone waves to their families and friends in the stands. They all start stretching so no one…

Economists have identified four types of competition—perfect competition, monopolistic competition, oligopoly, and monopoly. Perfect competition was discussed in the last section; we’ll cover the remaining three types of competition here.
In monopolistic competition, we still have many sellers (as we had under perfect competition). Now, however, they don’t sell identical products. Instead, they sell differentiated products—products that differ somewhat, or are perceived…

The Last Competition

My name is Daniel and today I am going to be talking about how competition has helped give me an edge at my job, improve my grades, and also shown me when to stop.
Competition is a normal and healthy thing in most workplaces. It not only helps me to work faster but when I view my job as a competition it also gives me motivation to learn new things. For example at my job there was a position that had just opened up that I had been…
Analysis of the competition
Given the segments in which we decided to compete, we focus our analysis on the Low-end, Traditional and High-end segments. Our analysis of the competition is mainly based on two dynamic parameters:
The degree of differentiation of our competitors in each segment
The degree of importance of a price war in each segment
The degree of differentiation may be evaluated as the distance from the current position of a product to its relative ideal spot inside a given segment…

This implies that the market structure is somewhere between a monopolistic and oligopolistic competition, leaning more towards monopolistic competition (Economicsonline.co.uk, 2015). The low-calorie frozen food products available in the market are relatively similar with slight differentiation amongst them.
The lifestyle of people has changed considerably…
