Question

The government has levied a per unit tax of $72.00 on the
suppliers of a good. The supply function of the good when there is
no tax is given by QS = 5P - 500. The supply function with the tax
is QS Tax=5P-860. The demand for this good is given by QD = 340 -
P. Calculate the dollar amount of tax revenue from this good.

Say that a tax of $10 per unit is levied on a good and at
that tax the equilibrium demand for the good is 1000 units.
Now say the tax increases from $10 to $11 per unit, and as a result
equilibrium demand for the good falls to 950 units. What
(approximately) is the MCF associated with the tax (show your work,
and explain the steps you are taking)?

In an effort to reduce alcohol consumption, the government of
economy XYZ is considering $1 tax on each gallon of liquor sold
(the tax is levied on producers). Suppose that the demand curve is
QD = 500,000- 20000P (where QD is the number of gallons of liquor
demanded and P is the price per gallon), and the supply curve for
liquor is Qs = 30000P (where Qs is the number of gallons
supplied).
a. Calculate the before tax equilibrium price...

Suppose the market for cigarettes is characterized by the
following information: Qd = 70 – 5P [Demand] Qs = 3P – 10
[Supply]
Suppose the government imposes a sales tax of $2 per unit.
Calculate the Dead-Weight- Loss due to the sales tax.
[Note: P = price per unit; Qd = thousands of units demanded; Qs
= thousands of units supplied]

Consider a competitive market for a good where the demand curve
is determined by:
the demand function: P = 5+-1*Qd and the supply curve is
determined by the supply function: P = 0.5*Qs.
Where P stands for Price, QD is quantity demanded and QS is
quantity supplied.
What is the quantity demanded of the good when the price level
is P = $4? Additionally assume a market intervention of the form of
per unit $2 tax on the consumption of...

Consider the market for butter in
Saudi Arabia. The demand and supply relations are given as
follows:
Demand:
QD = 12 - 2P
Supply:
Qs = 3P - 3.
P is the price of butter.
Calculate:
Equilibrium price _____________
2. Equilibrium quantity _____________
Consumer surplus
___________
4. Producer surplus ___________
Draw the demand and supply graphs. Show the equilibrium price
and quantity, consumer surplus and producer surplus in the graph
below. Graphs must be on scale.
Suppose government imposes...

The demand for sugar is given by: QD= 420 -0.25P. The supply of
sugar is given by: QS= 4P -1110. The equilibrium quantity without a
tax is 330 units. The government levies a $85 per unit tax on the
suppliers of sugar. Calculate deadweight loss from this tax.

Question: In question 1, what per unit tax would
maximize tax revenue? Find the deadweight loss in equilibrium under
the tax-revenue-maximizing tax
1. Suppose the demand for village defense in Temeria is
Qd=300-2P, and the supply is Qs=4P.

Incidence of the tax
The supply of fried okra (the tastiest of all
foods) is given by the function Qs = a + bp (with
b>0) and its demand is given by Qd = c + dp (with
d<0).
What is the equilibrium price of fried okra,
pe0?
The government decides to impose a unit tax t on the
supply of all food items (supplier pays the tax).
What is the equilibrium price after the tax,
pe1? (Hint: replace p...

Suppose that domestic demand in the market for good X is given
by the equation
Qd = 60 - P. And that domestic supply in the market for good X
is given by the equation Qs = 2P
Suppose the world price is $10 and the country allows free
trade.
What is consumer surplus with free trade?
Suppose the government imposes a $5 tariff on imports.
What is the gain to suppliers from this tariff?
What is the gain to...

Cigarettes in Australia have long been subject to excise tax – a
per cigarette tax levied on the suppliers of cigarettes. (The tax
applies to all tobacco products, however for the purposes of this
exam assume cigarette and tobacco consumption are the same thing).
In 2016 the federal government announced that the excise tax rate
for cigarettes would rise by 12.5% a year for the next 4 years.
Over this period tax revenue collected from the sale of cigarettes
has...
