Unformatted text preview: 2. Suppose the aggregate demand curve is given by 93(10) = a + bp + cp2 for p 6 [0,12], where a. > 0, :r’(p) < 0. There are three firms with cost functions given by cj(q_,) : ”Iggy 2+1 for je {1,2,3}. (a) Solve for the aggregate supply function. What is the market clearing price and quantity? What is it if a = 100,b = 73,3 = 74/9? What is it ifa = 100,11 = 63—1,c = 1? (b) Now the government levies a sales tax. Find the marginal effect of the tax on the price. How does the tax burden shift between consumers and producers as a function of a, b, and c? (c) What is the marginal effect of the tax on the price if a = 100, b = —3, c = —4/Q? What is it ifa:100,b: 53—1,c: 1? 6. There are two consumers with utility functions u1(a:11,:c21) = 3;?13531 and u2($12,$22) = 55121822. There are two firms with technologies that transform good 1 into good 2: f1(211) : 102916 and f2(z12) : 202922. Consumer 1’s shares of the firms is 6'1 : (1/3, 1/2) and consumer 2’s shares of the firms is 62 : (2/3, 1/2). The consumer’s are endowed with an : (100, 0) and mg 2 (50, 10). (a) Solve for the first order conditions of the consumers and the firms. (b) Solve for the competitive equilibrium. ((1) What is the firm’s profit? ...

    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.
