Question

The accompanying table shows the demand and supply schedules for concert tickets at Oracle Arena: Quantities are in THOUSANDS 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. 6M less taxi rides 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?

The market for tickets to the symphony can be described by the
following demand and supply curves: QD = 20,000 – 90P and QS =
10,000 + 110P
a. What are the equilibrium price and quantity in the ticket
market?
b. Lovers of classical music persuade the symphony to impose a
price ceiling of $40 per ticket. How many tickets are now sold in
the market? Is there a shortage or surplus of tickets---by how
many?...

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

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...
