Question

Give an example of a two-part tariff with two consumers having different demand equations where you:

- CANNOT price discriminate (Setting the same two-part price for both consumers)

- Can price discriminate

The answer must include the entry fee, unit price and the total profit. :-)

Answer #1

Two part tariff is a strategy mainly used in monopolistic market when two different prices are offered for same goods or services. One for the lumpsum amount, other for single piece .

Eg. Amusement parks offer a reduced per ticket price for a group of more people. And higher per ticket price for single individuals or family

1.CAN NOT price discriminate, when two different consumer's arrives which do not access their lumpsum criterion fir example an individual and a family, both will be offered the same price for per unit ticket

2.CAN price discriminate ,when a whole college comes with 600 hundred students then the per ticket charge will be reduced

The entry fee in case 1 would be more then incase to as the Per unit price would be higher but due to the large number of people wanting the ticket in case two, will increase the overall profit of the owner.

Consider a monopolist facing two types of consumers. Normalise
the total population to 1. Type one consumers are in proportion
1/2, and type two are in proportion 1/2. The monopolist has
marginal cost of production c = 1/2. The two types have demand
curves
q₁ =1-p
q₂ =1-(p/2).
If the monopolist can identify the two types and can charge
different two-part tariffs to different types: {A1, p1} and {A2,
p2}. [All type one consumers are identical and have the q1...

. The demand for mysterious good X in Lansing is Q = 12 ? P,
where P is the price of good X per pound and Q is the quantity
demanded in pounds. The marginal cost of producing the good is $2
per pound. There is no fixed cost of producing the good. There is
only one firm, Alice, who can produce the good. Alice can perfectly
price discriminate. Rather than naming the price for each quantity
sold, Alice uses...

A price-searcher firm wants to try a two-part tariff. The firm's
marginal cost is a constant $7 and it will charge
that as the per unit price. To complicate things, the firm has two
different groups of consumers. There are 30
consumers who have a demand function given by:
qD=15.25-0.25P. There are also
40 consumers who have a demand function given by:
qD=30.5-0.5P
If the firm charges a fee that is too high, then it may lose all
of the...

A monopolist faces different demand from two groups of
consumers. Their demand functions and total cost of the monopolist
are as follows:
Demand from group 1: Q1=20-P1
Demand from group 2: Q2=22-0.5P2
Total cost function: TC=100+0.5Q2 where
Q=Q1+Q2
Suppose the firm is able to price discriminate between the two
groups of consumers.
(a) What is the optimal output level of the monopolist for group
1?
(b) What price should be charged for group 1 by the
monopolist?
(c) What is...

2. Suppose that there is a firm that sells the same good in two
different markets and that it is able to prevent resale from the
lower priced market to the higher priced market. The direct demand
functions for the two markets are given by the following two
equations:
Q1 = 8- P1 Q2= 12- P2
Also, the firm produces this good in one plant, so the Total
Cost function is given by the following equation:
TC = 5 +...

A monopolist has two specific demanders with demand equations:
qA = 10 – p and qB = 10 – 2p. This monopolist implements an optimal
two-part tariff pricing scheme, under which demanders pay a fixed
fee a for the right to consume the good and a uniform price p for
each unit consumed. The monopolist chooses a and p to maximize
profits. This monopolist produces at constant average and marginal
costs of AC = MC = 2. The monopolist’s profits...

A firm is selling its product in two markets. In market A the
demand is given by QA = 100 − 2P and in market B the demand is QB =
80 − 4P. The firm’s total cost is C = 10Q where Q = QA + QB is the
total output. a) Suppose the monopolist cannot discriminate between
markets A and B. What is the total demand ? (1 pt) Find the
profit-maximizing price and quantity (2 pt), and...
