Firms are in perfect competition when the following conditions occur: (1) many firms produce identical products; (2) many buyers are available to buy the product, and many sellers are available to sell the product; (3) sellers and buyers have all relevant information to make rational decisions about the product that they are buying and selling; and (4) firms can enter and leave the market. In fact, in a dramatic change from the late s, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development says the U.S. now regulates product markets more heavily than many developed economies.
