For the most part, economists begin with the assumption that the shape of firms and what they do is mainly determined by the operation of a competitive market economy under which firms find efficient solutions to the production and sale of goods and services to maximise profits. Where markets are efficient, inefficient firms are penalised in the marketplace, leading to a loss of market share and replacement by more efficient operators. This process of optimisation under market competition will result in convergence towards practices and behaviours which are consistent with profit maximisation.
