UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA HAAS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS EWMBA 201A—Economic Analysis for Business Decisions Fall 2009 Felix Várdy Problem Set #1 Doing these problems is optional. The solutions to these questions will be posted by Saturday, August 15 and discussed in section that day. The educational value of these exercises will be maximized if you attempt to answer these questions before you look at the answers. Sometimes students find a question in these problem sets frustrating. Since these are not graded, you are free to stop working on a problem whenever you feel the gain from further effort is not worth the cost of further frustration and time. What is important is that you have thought seriously about the problems, not that you have necessarily gotten the correct answer to every one of them. Question 1 Imagine that you work for the World Bank, a development bank that provides loans and policy advice to governments around the world. The World Bank is trying to encourage the Russian government to privatize an industry, and you have been asked to help the Bank determine the market price and quantity that would prevail in the Russian market if competitive forces were allowed to equilibrate the market. The best estimates of the market demand and supply for the Russian good (in U.S. dollar equivalent prices) are given by Q D = 10- 2P and Q s = 2 + 2P, respectively. Both Q D and Q s are measured in billions of units of the good.

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.
