You will be applying this tool by specifically looking at the market structure in which a firm completes. You will need to be able to distinguish an oligopoly from a monopolistic competitive market structure.
There are two groups of firms below.
For each group determine and explain if the group is monopolistic competitive or an oligopoly. You need to specific for both in which market structure the firms operate.
Then choose one of the firms from one group. Using a Porter's analysis what are the threat to profitability?
