...BU224-02 Microeconomics Problem - 1 A) In the absence of any price floor, consumer surplus is the area below the demand curve but above the equilibrium price. Equilibrium price = $0.13 Equilibrium quantity = 211.5 billion pound. So, consumer surplus = ½ * (0.2-0.13)*211.5 = $7.403 billion B) Producer surplus is the area above the supply curve but below the equilibrium price. Producer surplus = ½ *(0.13-0.06)*211.5 = $7.403 billion C) Total surplus = consumer surplus + producer surplus = $7.403 billion + $7.403 billion = $14.806 billion D) With the price floor at $0.17 per pound, consumer surplus is the area below the demand curve but above the price. Consumer surplus = ½ * (0.20-0.17)*211 = $3.165 billion E) With the price floor at $0.17 per pound, producer surplus is the area above the supply curve but below the price. Producer surplus = ½* (0.17-0.06)*212.5 = $11.688 billion F) USDA buys 1.5 billion pounds of cheese at a price $0.17 per pound. So, USDA spends $0.17*1.5 billion = $0.255 billion G) Total surplus when there is price floor = consumer surplus + producer surplus - money spent by the USDA = $3.165+$11.688-$0.255 = $14.598 billion H) This is less than the total surplus without price floor.

...Unit 2 Assignment: St Atanagio Name: - Course Number: -BU224 Section Number: - Unit Number: - 2 Date: -12-17-2013 St Atanagio is a remote island in the Atlantic. The inhabitants grow corn and breed poultry. The accompanying table shows the maximum annual output combinations of corn and poultry that can be produced. Obviously, given their limited resources and available technology, as they use more of their resources for corn production, there are fewer resources available for breeding poultry. Maximum annual output options Quantity of Corn (pounds) Quantity of Poultry (pounds) 1 1200 0 2 1000 300 3 800 500 4 600 600 5 400 700 6 200 775 7 0 850 1. Draw a production possibility frontier with corn on the horizontal axis and poultry on the vertical axis illustrating these options, showing points 1–7. 2. Can St. Atanagio produce 650 pounds of poultry and 650 pounds of corn? Explain. Where would this point lie relative to the production possibility frontier? I would answer no to this question because as the quantity of corn increases as the quantity of poultry decreases. The equilibrium point gets stabilized at 600 because for 600 pounds of corn, the accumulation of poultry will be 600 pounds. However, it is clear that for 650 pounds of corn there will be 575 pounds of poultry and at the same point there are 650 pounds of corn and 650 pounds of poultry lies outside the production possibility frontier. 3.

...Unit 4 Assignment: Problem 1 & 2 Name: -Sikeya Hawkins Course Number: - 224 Section Number: -02 Unit Number: - 4 Date: -1/7/14 Problem 1 Suppose that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers the price floor for cheese, set at $0.17 per pound of cheese. (In real life, the actual price floor was officially set at $16.10 per hundredweight of cheese. One hundredweight is 100 pounds.) At that price, according to data from the USDA, the quantity of cheese produced in 2009 by U.S. producers was 212.5 billion pounds, and the quantity demanded was 211 billion pounds. To support the price of cheese at the price floor, the USDA had to buy up 1.5 billion pounds of cheese. The accompanying diagram shows supply and demand curves illustrating the market for cheese. [pic] a. In the absence of a price floor, the maximum price that a few of the consumers are willing to pay is $0.20 for a pound of cheese whereas the market equilibrium price is $0.13 per pound. The graph also shows that the minimum price at which a few of the producers are willing to sell is $0.06 per pound. In the absence of a price floor, how much consumer surplus is created? Answer: In the absence of any price floor, consumer surplus is the area below the demand curve but above the equilibrium price. Equilibrium price = $0.13 Equilibrium quantity = 211.5 billion pound. So, consumer surplus = ½ * (0.2-0.13)*211.5 = $7.403 billion b. How much producer......

American workers are more productive and as a result earn higher wages. In order to preserve the dignity of the American workplace, the government should enact legislation banning imports of low - wage Asian clothing.” a. Which parts of this quote are positive statements? Workers in Asia are earning pennies an hour. American workers are more productive. Which parts are normative statements? The government should enact legislation banning imports of low-wage Asian clothing. b. Is the policy that is being advocated consistent with the preceding statements about the wages and productivities of American and Asian workers? No. The speaker offered no proof that just because Asians earned lower wages that they were less productive. c. Would such a policy make some Americans better off without making any other Americans worse off? No. This policy may make some American’s better off, but will hurt others. Because companies that import goods from low-wage countries would now have to pay American......
