question

Charlie can work as many hours as he wishes at a local fast food restaurant for a wage

of $4 per hour. Charlie also does standup comedy. Since Charlie lives in a quiet, rather solemn

midwestern town, he is the town's only comedian and has a local monopoly for standup comedy.

The demand for comedy is Q = 40P where Q is the number of hours of comedy performed per

week and P is the price charged per hour of comedy. When Charlie maximizes his utility, he spends

at least one hour per week working at the restaurant and he gets at least one hour of leisure time.

His utility depends only on income and leisure. How many hours per week does he perform standup

comedy?

(a) 36

(b) 40

(c) 18

(d) 20

(e) We can't tell without knowing his utility function.

the marginal revenue curve for this monopolist always has a negative slope. Then the monopolist:

(a) is minimizing its prots.

(b) produces the same output that it would if it maximized prots.

(c) produces less output than it would if it maximized prots.

(d) produces more output than it would if it were maximizing prots.

(e) produces an output where marginal revenue is strictly less than 1.

The Fabulous 500s Decor Company is the only producer of pink

amingo lawn statues. While

business is not a good as it used to be, in recent times the annual demand has been Q = 800 2P.

Flamingo lawn statues are hand crafted by artisans using the process Q = min(L; P=6); where L is

hours of labor, and P is pounds of pink plastic. PL = 15 and PP = 2. What would be the prot

question

A prot-maximizing monopoly faces an inverse demand function described by the equa-

tion p(y) = 60y and its total costs are c(y) = 7y; where prices and costs are measured in dollars.

In the past it was not taxed, but now it must pay a tax of 2 dollars per unit of output. After the

tax, the monopoly will

(a) increase its price by 2.

(b) increase its price by 3.

(c) increase its price by 1.

(d) leave its price constant.

(e) None of the other options are correct.

question

A rm has invented a new beverage called Slops. It doesn't taste very good, but it gives

people a craving for Lawrence Welk's music and Professor Johnson's jokes. Some people are willing

to pay money for this eect, so the demand for Slops is given by the equation q = 18p. Slops can

be made at zero marginal cost from old-fashioned macroeconomics books dissolved in bathwater.

But before any Slops can be produced, the rm must undertake a xed cost of 86. Since the in-

ventor has a patent on Slops, it can be a monopolist in this new industry.

(a) The rm will produce 9 units of Slops.

(b) A Pareto improvement could be achieved by having the government pay the rm a subsidy of 91 and

insisting that the rm oer Slops at zero price.

(c) From the point of view of social eciency, it is best that no Slops be produced.

(d) The rm will produce 18 units of Slops.

(e) None of the other options are correct.
