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. 2. What is the amount of the deadweight loss caused by this price ceiling? ___$375___ 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 __$60_, and the price sellers receive is ___$45___. 4. The deadweight loss from the tax on pinot grigio is ___$37.50____ A perfectly competitive firm producing widget polish has the following cost structure: • !" = 200 • !" = 20! + !! • !" = 200 + 20! + !! • !" = 20 + 2! 5. If the market price for widget polish is $80, this firm should produce _30___ units of widget polish. 6. If the market price for widget polish is $80, this firm will make a profit of ___$700___.
