This paper develops a theoretical analysis of steady state monopoly pricing in markets with a disparity between long‐ and short‐run demand elasticities, based on a separation between the long‐run demand schedule and the adjustment process that underlies actual demand levels. This sheds light, in a practical context, on the impact of the speed of adjustment and the firm's discount rate on its equilibrium markup; and on the measurement of realized monopoly power. An illustrative application of the analysis to existing empirical data supplements the theoretical presentation.
