I forgot how to get total social surplus, I'd also appreciate if the rest of the question could be answered (comparison of surplus with part a)


d. Suppose we instead impose a policy that limits production of O to a maximum of 2 units.
Assume as usual that price is given by the demand curve. What is the total social surplus? How
does the distribution of this surplus differ when compared to the market outcome in part a
(identity winners and/or losers from this policy relative to the market outcome)?
