Economics 290: Canadian Microeconomic Policy Tutorial #4 (Week of June 4) 1. Bill G. bought a piece of land and plans to build an airport for personal use. His benefit from each flight per day is given by MB = 400. His marginal cost is MPC = 20F, where F is number of flights per day. Unfortunately, the airport will be located next to Adam’s house, and the sound of each flight brings him a negative utility (in monetary equivalent) of 100. (a) What is Bill’s preferred amount of flights if the government does not regulate? Bill chooses F to max his own wellbeing. Set MB equal to MPC. 400 = 20F. F = 20. (b) Adam has complained to the state government, and the government has decided to set a fixed number of flights per day that are allowed to land at the airport. What should that number be? Government chooses F to max total welfare of Adam and Bill. Set MB equal to MSC = MPC + MEC. 400 = 20F + 100. F = 15. (c) Suppose the government decided to give property rights over flight landings to Adam. How many flights would Adam allow? Explain your answer.

### 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.
