Which of the following sets of elasticities would result in the largest deadweight loss: (1) [5, 1.2], (2) [2, 0.2], (3) [0.8, 1], (4) [1, 1.4]? Briefly explain why. 7. The market demand function for pizza slices isand the market supply function is. Suppose the government grants an 18 cent subsidy for the sellers of each pizza slice. Calculate the consumer surplus, producer surplus and aggregate surplus at the competitive market equilibrium for before and after the subsidy. What is the deadweight loss of the subsidy? 8. The market demand function for pizza slices isand the market supply function is. Suppose the government wants to raise the price of a slice of pizza to \$3.00 and is debating between a price floor, a price support program, a quota, and a voluntary production reduction program. They hire an economist (you!) to describe what each action would entail. Briefly explain how each program would work for this market and calculate the resulting deadweight loss. 9.

Conclusion

The deadweight loss is found by computing the area of the triangle. 7. An emission standard is a legal limit on the amount of pollution that a person or entity can produce from a particular activity. In order for the government to set an efficient emission standard it needs to know precisely the polluter's cost of abatement and the social costs. Thus, both sides have an incentive to overestimate the costs. On the one hand, the polluter will overestimate their cost of abatement so that the government places higher emission standards. The pollutee has the incentive to overestimate the social cost of emissions so that the government sets a lower emission standard. 9. The efficient number of gnomes is found by equating the marginal benefit to the marginal cost. At the efficient level of gnomes your marginal cost is \$8. Therefore, an efficient Pigouvian tax is \$8 per gnome. With such a tax your neighbor will choose to only 8 gnomes and will pay a total of \$48 dollars to have the gnomes running free in the garden. 11. A liability rule is a legal principle that forces polluters that create an externality to compensate the affected parties for some or all of their losses. So a liability rule would make a polluter internalize the marginal cost of the externality they create. One of the difficulties that arise with implementing a liability rule are legal fees which are costly and time consuming. 13. First, we must compute the MSB of having plants in the classroom. Now we set MSB = MC: Thus the socially efficient number of plants is 16. To find what each student would chose individually set MB =MC: Individually each student would choose to have 12 plants. If you notice, at Q = 16 the marginal cost exceeds the marginal benefit, such that each student will have an incentive to reduce the number of plants. The break-even point between marginal cost and marginal benefit is where Q = 12. 15. ...read more.
