ENNEC 100 Spring 2009 Homework 1 Due in class February 10. Please show all your work. Homeworks must be typed, on one side of the page and stapled. No hand written assignments will be graded. 1) (30 points) Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are stuck together on a desert island. There are two goods, turtles (T) and bananas (B). Barack has production function 2T+B=100, while Bill has production function T+4B=300. If they could not trade, Barack would choose to product 35T, while Bill would produce 40B. Now Barack and Bill meet. Explain a production/trade combination that would make both better off. 2) (40 points) The supply of widgets is Q=-100+2P. The demand is Q=800-3P. Graph the wealth created by production in this market when Q goes from 200 to 300.
