What is Monopoly in Economics
Maybe when you hear the word “Monopoly”, the first thing that will come in to your mind in the board game. Here we define what is monopoly in Economics.
Monopoly is a situation where one company is the sole manufacturer of a certain product, without the product having close substitutes, and it thereby “controls” the market.
