The horizontal black line (PWPW) represents the world price of tangerines at $500 per ton. Assume that Burundi's entry into the world market for tangerines has no effect on the world price and there are no

    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.
