Thanks to a new federal program that will provide 50% matching funds, Fun City has decided to build a new

municipal water park with pools, water slides, and so forth. To build the water park, Fun City would have to purchase concrete from an essentially competitive market. As a result of this purchase, the price of concrete would increase slightly.

Briefly explain. [In answering this question, demonstrate that you know what shadow pricing is and use a diagram to illustrate your discussion.]
