2. (2 points total). Effect of a tax Consider the market for women’s sweaters manufactured in China and sold in the United States. The market is initially in equilibrium at a
price of $75 per sweater and 1,000 sweaters sold per month. Then a tax (a tariff) is imposed on each sweater imported from China. The
tax is paid to the U.S. government by the importer, which is the U.S. seller of the sweater. Although in reality the tax is expressed as a
percentage of the sweater’s price, to make this question easier to answer we will assume the tax is a flat dollar amount of $25. A. Using the axes at the right, show the effect of the tax

the tick marks for the vertical axis are at $25
intervals, and the tick marks for the horizontal axis
are at intervals of 250 sweaters per month. No need """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

general, under what conditions would the buyer bear
a larger burden of the tax than the seller? ...........4.............+.......-s.... quantity
