Student Generated Test Questions Producer Theory Micromaniacs: A Ganesh, G. Sangha 1. Sher Khan, is a power hungry monopolist involved in the industry of making jungle books. He faces an industry demand of Q=12-P. When Khan produces each new jungle book, his total costs change by 2q. a) At what quantity will Khan produce to maximize profits? b) Suppose Khan's patent expires and a new firm; Mowgli, plans to enter the jungle book market. His cost curves are given as C= (q^2) + 8. Khan, angry that he no longer dominates the jungle book industry, secretly plans to engage in predatory price so that he can destroy the other firms even before they establish a base. How can Khan use Sylos' economic model of limit price to kick out Mowgli? Find qm, qs and Price. c) Suppose 5 new additional firms Baloo, Bagheera, Kaa, King Louie, and Col. Hathi also enter at the same time as Mowgli. They however have acquired huge excess capital at a lower price and have very low fixed costs. Predict and provide reasoning as to how this will affect Sher Khan's predatory pricing strategy? Note: No calculations are required here. Eekanamists: A Gouriannov, C Campbell 2. Since having their show cancelled in 1997, Beavis and Butthead have fallen on some hard times and need some cash. To raise money to feed their gambling addiction they've decided to start a lawn mowing company. They believe the industry runs based on Cournot's n-opoly model. After hiring an expensive economist for a flat fee of \$125 they find out that the market demand is Q=40-P/5. The cost of mowing lawns is C=100q, this is not the total cost. a) Solve for equilibrium q, Q, n and P. b) A friend told Beavis and Butthead that there is a super duper young economist. She charges only \$80. Recalculate n, q, Q and P. Tekken: B Fan 3. A new oil deposit has been found in northern Canada, A new town called Benacedeco has been built there.

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.

• 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.
