ECO 100B Problem Set 4 1. (a) At the equilibrium, 1000 10 P = 10 + 200 P P = 990 210 = 33 7 Q = 6670 7 (b) With the $1 tax, marginal costs increase by $1 and hence, so does the supply curve. Let Q S = 10 + 200 P P = Q S 10 200 With the $1 tax, from the consumer±s perspective, the supply curve shifts up by $1. So: P = Q S 10 200 + 1 = Q S + 190 200 Q S = 200 P 190 At the equilibrium, Q D = Q S so: 200 P 190 = 1000 10 P P = 17 3 Q = 2830 3 (c) The consumer±s price goes up from 33 7 to 17 3 which is an increase of $ 20 21 . The price received by producers goes down from 33 7 to 17 3 1 ± which is a decrease of 1 21 . The consumer±s share is 20 21 and the producer±s share is 1 21 . (d) The Long Run Supply curve is horizontal at P = 33 7 . (e) The $1 per unit tax will shift the entire AC curve up by $1, as well as its minimum point 1
