1 The Colorado College Department of Economics and Business Block 7 Econ 207 HW 11. 1. The pricing game between two firms, which can set either low or a high price, is given by the following normal form: (a) Find the Nash equilibrium or equilibria of the game. (2 points) (b) How would you label the actions to make it a quantity game like Cournot? (2 points) (c) Suppose demand for a commodity is given by Q = 10,000 – 1000P And marginal cost is constant at MC = 6. Derive the marginal revenue curve. Calculate the price and quantity associated with perfect cartel outcome. Compute industry profit, consumer surplus and deadweight loss. (6 points) 2. Consider a Cournot model where the market demand is given by Q = 120 – P with Q= q A +q B where q A, q B are the quantities produced by firm A and B, respectively. Suppose that marginal and average costs are constant at MC = AC = 30. Calculate the Nash equilibrium quantities for each firm, price and profits for each firm as well as total industry profits. (4+4 = 8 points) 3. Consider the Bertrand model of price competition with differentiated products. The

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
