Effects of Price Controls The accompanying table shows the demand and supply schedules for concert tickets at Oracle Arena: Quantities are in THOUSANDS 6 Lost Demand Ticket Price Q d Q s $150.00 20 24 $135.00 22 22 $120.00 24 20 $105.00 26 18 $90.00 28 16 $75.00 30 14

a. Find the equilibrium price and quantity.

b. Suppose that the Oakland mayor sets a price ceiling of $105. How large is the shortage of concert? Show on the supply and demand diagrams, and also calculate the amount of ticket shortage. Who loses and who benefits from this policy?

c. Suppose that the stock market crashes, demand for concert tickets plummet as a result. 6K less concert tickets are demanded per year (shifting the Qd curve). What effect will the mayor's new policy have now?

d. Suppose that the stock market skyrockets, as does the demand. Now the mayor wants to ingratiate himself with the Oracle Arena and sets a $150 price floor. Illustrate the effects of this policy on the market, and determine the new price and quantity. What is the deadweight loss?

Answer #1

. The equilibrium will be at point where quantity demand and quantity supply are equal. In the given case at ticket price $135 quantity demanded for ticket is equal to quantity supply of ticket. That is- at $135 quantity demanded is 22 untis and quantity supplied is also 22 units, therefore equilibrium price is $135 and equilibrium quantity is 22 units.

b. When price is ceiling is set at $105, then demand will be 26 units and supply will be 18 units. At this poind demand will exceed supply by 8 units. The price will drop to $105 from $135, therefore seller will bear a loss of $30 ($135-$105).

Graph a typical linear (that means straight line) supply and
demand curve for the tickets to a 100,000 seat stadium. Assume that
the # of seats in the stadium is fixed at the beginning, and price
of each ticket is $50. Label each axis properly and denote
equilibrium price and quantity, P* and Q*, respectively. Now,
consider that the ticket we just drew the supply and demand for, is
a normal good. Suppose the average household income goes down in...

The E-Street Band has market power. Consumers demand tickets to
each (monthly) live performance according to P = 15-0.1 * Q (MR =
15-0.2Q). The band faces a constant Marginal Cost of MC = $0.20.
Their total costs are TC = 150 + 0.2Q
a. In this setting, how many tickets should they sell to each
concert to maximize profits? At what price should those tickets be
sold? What are the band's profits? Graph this scenario.
b. What would be...
