Question

3) Suppose a $4/unit tax is placed on a good. If the original equilibrium is (P = $20, Q = 1000) and the new equilibrium is (P = $21, Q = 800), what is the consumer tax burden?

Group of answer choices

a $2400

b $1000

c $3200

d $800

4)

Suppose the demand curve for cigarettes is extremely inelastic (relatively steep). If the government decides to increase its revenue by taxing cigarette sales, will consumers or producers pay a larger proportion of the tax? Will an inelastic demand curve create more or less deadweight loss than an elastic one, all else equal?

Group of answer choices

a Consumers bear larger tax burden, inelastic demand curve will have more deadweight loss

b Producers bear larger tax burden, inelastic demand curve will have more deadweight loss

c Producers bear larger tax burden, inelastic demand curve will have less deadweight loss

d Consumers bear larger tax burden, inelastic demand curve will have less deadweight loss

Answer #1

3. Before tax price paid by buyers = $ 20 per unit

After tax price paid = $ 21 per unit

Tax incidence on buyer = $ 21 - 20 = $ 1 per unit

Tax burden on buyers = $ 1 × 800 = $ **800**

4. As it isme too ed that demand curve is inelastic therefore, buyers will bear a larger burden of tax in comparison to sellers.

The deadweight loss in this case would be smaller. As the demand curve is inelastic. In case of inelastic demand due to tax imposed by government the impact on quantity demanded would be small.

d. Consumers bear larger tax burden, inelastic demand curve will have less deadweight loss.

Which of the following sentences about tax incidence is true? I.
If demand is relatively elastic, producers will bear a greater
burden of the tax than consumers. II. If supply is completely
inelastic, producers will bear all the burden of the tax. III. If
the supply curve is completely elastic, consumers will bear none of
the burden of the tax. Group of answer choices II and III only. III
only I, II and III. II only. I and II only.

The demand for skateboards in Vermillion is Q = 500−2P and the
supply curve is Q = 1/2 P. The government 2
decides to raise revenue by taxing consumers $25 for each
skateboard purchased.
(a) Graph the supply and demand curves and calculate the
consumer and producer surplus that would exist if there were no tax
in the market.
(b) Show how the tax will change the market equilibrium price
and quantity. Identify the price paid by consumers and the...

1). The market demand function for a good is given by Q = D(p) =
800 − 50p. For each firm that produces the good the total cost
function is TC(Q) = 4Q+( Q2/2) . Recall that this means
that the marginal cost is MC(Q) = 4 + Q. Assume that firms are
price takers.
(a) What is the efficient scale of production and the minimum of
average cost for each firm?
Hint: Graph the average cost curve first.
(b)...

- The impact of tax on markets and welfare distribution. - Use
supply and demand diagrams to answer the following questions.
Draw
new diagrams for answers to each part.
a- Show that regardless of who the tax is levied on (consumers or
producers), a tax
increase the price paid by consumers, decrease the price received
by producers, and make
the market smaller compared with a free market. Notes: You should
use two diagrams, one for
tax on consumers and one...

Suppose that the demand equation: P = 6 – Q and supply equation:
P = Q.
a. Calculate the price elasticity of demand at
equilibrium.
b. Calculate the equilibrium price and quantity, and consumer
surplus and producer surplus.
c. Suppose government imposes a unit tax of $1 on producers. Derive
the new supply curve and also calculate the new equilibrium price
and quantity.
d. Calculate tax revenue and the deadweight loss of this tax.

Suppose the average monthly demand for cigarettes can be
described by the equation QD = 30−p, and supply can be described by
the equation QS = 18+2p, where p is the price of a pack of
cigarettes. When there is no tax on cigarettes, the equilibrium
price is p0 =$4 per pack and Q0 =26.
(a) Suppose the government sets a specific tax on tobacco
producers of τ = $1.50 per pack to reduce tobacco consumption. How
much do consumers...

Suppose that, in the market for soda drinks, demand is given by
P= 48 – 0.6Q, and supply is given by P= 0.2Q. Further, suppose that
the government decides to impose a $4 per soda drink.
A. On a graph, demonstrate the effect of the tax on the
equilibrium price and quantity. (Clearly label the value of each
both before and after the tax.)
B. Show on the graph and calculate the tax revenue and
deadweight loss that result from...

Suppose the demand curve for a good is Q =9 −pand the supply
curve is Q =2p. The government imposes a specific tax of =1 per
unit. What would be the equilibrium? What effect does the tax have
on consumer surplus, producer surplus and deadweight loss?
