Suppose the demand functions facing a wireless telephone monopolist in worked-out problem 18.4 (p. 688) are instead Q d L = 40 – 100 P for each low-demand consumer and Q d H = 120 -100 P for each high-demand consumer, where P is the per-minute price in dollars. The marginal cot is 10 cents per minute. (a) Suppose the monopolist offers only a single two-part tariff. What will be the monopolist’s profit from each type of consumer if it charges a per-minute price of 10 cents and a fixed fee that causes both types of consumer to make a purchase? Graph the demand curves and show how you arrived at your answer. (b). What will be the monopolist’s profit if it charges a per-minute price of 20 cents and a fixed fee that causes both types of consumer to make a purchase? Graph the demand curves and show how you arrived at your answer. (c) If there are 100 high-demand consumers, how many low-demand consumers can there monopolist serve and find the 20-cent-per-minute price more profitable than the 10-cent price? monopolist serve and find the 20-cent-per-minute price more profitable than the 10-cent price?...
