  2. 2. Technology Firms maximize profits π = R(q, p) – C(q, r, w) π is profit from producing q when prices are p, r, w R is revenue from producing q when the output price is p C is cost of producing q when input prices are r and w q is the quantity produced p is the price of output r is rent, the price of capital (K), an input w is wage, the price of Labor (L), the other input
