Answer #1

1.At equilibrium demand =supply , 60-0.5Q=12+0.5Q . SO, [Q=48]and [P=36] .

Now CS = .5*24*48=576 and PS is .5*36*48 =864.

2.New Equilibrium is 72-.5Q=12+.5Q So, [P=30] and[Q=60] . And CS =.5*42*60=1260 and PS =.5*30*60 =900.

3. Market Price for local consumer and producer is 30 after assuming 12 unit will use for world trade. And any price in world is not affect the market price.

4.So, the price in world is increase by 4. And deadweight loss is social loss neither producer nor consumer will be benefitted.
