Suppose the government imposes a price ceiling at P=$20. In the graph below, draw the supply and demand curves, and the price ceiling. Label the resulting consumer surplus, producer surplus, and deadweight loss from the price ceiling. Supply and Demand of Green Fuzz 80 70 60 price of green fuzz 50 40 30 20 10 0 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 400 quantity of green fuzz 2. What is the amount of the deadweight loss caused by this price ceiling? $___________ In the market for pinot grigio, the inverse demand curve is P=100 – 2Q, and the inverse supply curve is P=25+Q, where Q is measured in gallons of pinot grigio. 3. If the government imposes a $15 per gallon tax on pinot grigio, the price buyers will have to pay for a gallon of pinot grigio is $_______, and the price sellers receive is $___________. 4.
