ACTUALLY ANSWER THE QUESTION DON'T REPEAT THAT MAPLE SYRUP ANSWER

Let’s model the market for maple syrup of a small fictional economy. We start by making assumptions on consumer’s preferences so as to derive the market demand. Suppose 2,000 families live in the small country and that the typical family has utility from maple syrup (m) and expenditure on other products (e) equal to U(m,e) = 20m – m^2 + e. The quantity of maple syrup (m) is measured in pints per month, while expenditure on other items (e) is measured in dollars.

Assuming families allocate their budget in a rational way, find the demand for maple syrup of the typical family.

Aggregating across families, find the market demand for maple syrup.

Now, turn your attention to the supply side. Assume that 100 firms sell maple-syrup. The typical firm has a short run total cost of TC(q) = 0.1q2 + 8q + 40 where q is measured in pints per month.

3. Assuming that each firm chooses output to maximize profit, find the supply of maple syrup of the typical firm.

4. Find the market supply of maple syrup.

5. Find the equilibrium price, the equilibrium market quantity, the number of pints of maple syrup each family buys each month, and the number of pints of maple syrup each firm sells each month.

6. In a diagram, illustrate the market demand, the market supply and the market equilibrium.

Suppose a new trade agreement allows firms to sell maple syrup abroad at a unit price of $18.

7. Illustrate this event in your demand/supply diagram adding a horizontal foreign demand curve at the price of $18.

8. How does the new trade agreement affect the domestic market for maple syrup?

9. How does the trade agreement affect buyers’ welfare and sellers’ profits?

10. How much money should government pay buyers of maple syrup to fully compensate them for the higher price of maple syrup?

Answer #1

Maple syrup is a syrup is made out of sugar maple, red maple, red maple tree, although it can also be made out of other maple species .Maple tress are tapped by drilling holes into trunks and collecting the exuded sap.

maple syrup was first collected and used by North
Americans.

it is used on its density and translucent

technical improvements had done in 1970

sucrose is the most prevalent sugar in the maple syrup

Maple syrup is often eaten with pancakes, waffles, French toast etc. This ingredient is basically used in cooking for sweeter the things and work as a flavoring agent.

Classification of maple syrup-

golden color and delicate taste

amber color and rich taste

dark color and robust taste

very dark color and bitter taste

(a) Answer the following questions by using demand and supply
analysis for the market of printer.
(i) Suppose the production of printer is now
completely-automated. Use the demand and supply analysis to explain
how it affects the market of printer. What are the effects on the
equilibrium price and equilibrium quantity of printer? No diagram
is needed but you need to describe how the curve(s) shift(s).
(ii) Suppose the price of ink for printers increases
substantially recently. Use...

Suppose that the market for laptops is perfectly
competitive. The long-run equilibrium price is $3000 for a laptop.
Suppose that the laptop market is initially in long-run
equilibrium. Assume that all businesses that make laptops are
identical.
On a diagram, illustrate the market demand for laptops,
the short-run and long-run market supply of laptops. (1

The market demand curve is P = 90 − 2Q, and each firm’s total
cost function is
C = 100 + 2q2.
Suppose there is only one firm in the market. Find the
market
price, quantity, and the firm’s profit.

The airfreight market is best modelled as Cournot competition.
This is because competing firms must hire aircraft and establish
distribution networks before offering airfreight services. Demand
for airfreight services is, P = 42 − 0.1Q, where P represents the
price of transporting a package, and Q is the total number of
packages transported per year, measured in millions of packages. At
present, AAS charges $30 a package and transports 120,000,000
packages per year. While the firm is inefficient, it manages...
