Suppose that you have the following production function:
Y=9K0.5N0.5. With this production function the marginal product of
labor is MPN=4.5K0.5N-0.5 (hint: firms pay workers MPN so this
equals w). The capital stock is K=25. The labor supply curve is
NS=100[(1-t)]w]2 , where w is the real wage, t is the tax on
income, and hence (1-t)w is the after-tax real wage rate.

A firm has a production function Y =
(K0.3)*(N0.7). Given this production
function, the marginal product of labor is given by
MPN
=0.7*(K0.3)*(N-0.3). Suppose that
the firm uses 1 unit of capital for production, that is, K = 1.
Additionally, suppose that the market wage is w = 0.35.

1. Labor Market
Consider an economy with production function given by Y =
AK0.5L0.5 where A is the total factor productivity (TFP), K is the
capital stock and L is the labor input. For simplicity assume
capital is fixed and equal to 1. Assume A=150.
Write the firm’s problem of choosing labor demand. Derive the
demand for labor as a function of the real wage.
Assume labor supply is inelastic and fixed at L̄ = 100. Find the
equilibrium values...

The Hoosier economy has the production function:
Y = A F (K, N) = 6 (K) 0.5 (N) 0.5
The capital is K = 64, and the labor demanded is N
= 25;
the marginal product of labor is MPN =
3 K1/2/ N1/2
the marginal product of capital is MPK = 3 N1/2/
K1/2

The company Peach has the following production function:
Y= -2L^2 +32L (for L less than or equal to 8)
Show that MPL = 4(8-L)
Given the wages are $12, how many workers would the firm
hire?

Suppose the production function is Y=100(N-0.01N^2). And the
marginal product of labor is MPN=100-2N. The aggregate quantity of
labor supplied is NS=50+1.5w-Tr, where w is the real wage rate and
Tr = 20 is the lump-sum transfer that household received from the
government. The full-employment level of output is
less than or equal to 2,000
more than 2,000, but less than or equal to 2,500
more than 2,500, but less than or equal to 3,500
more than 3,500, but less...

Suppose the production function is Y=100(N-0.01N^2). And the
marginal product of labor is MPN=100-2N. The aggregate quantity of
labor supplied is NS=50+1.5w-Tr, where w is the real wage rate and
Tr = 20 is the lump-sum transfer that household received from the
government. The equilibrium real wage is
less than or equal to 10

A company’s production function is given by Y = A(40N –
N2 +100). Suppose the price of output is $6 per unit and A =1.
(Hint: you need to get MPN from the production function to solve
the questions below.)
What will be the demand for labor if the nominal wage is
$24?
What will be the demand for labor when the TFP is
increased such as A=2 (still assuming W=$24)?
