Suppose the federal government sets a price floor for wheat at \$21 per bushel3a) Draw supply and demand curves for the agricultural crop. Show how the equilibrium priceand quantity will be affected by the price floor (be sure to label the axis)b) If the government agrees to purchase any surplus output at \$21, how much will it cost thegovernment?c) If the government buys all of the farmers' output at the floor price, how many bushels ofwheat will it have to purchase and how much will it cost the government?d) Suppose the government buys up all of the farmers' output at the floor price and then sellsthe output to consumers at whatever price it can get. Under this scheme, what is the priceat which the government will be able to sell off all of the output it had purchased fromfarmers? What is the revenue received from the government's sale?e) In this problem we have considered two government schemes: (1) a price floor isestablished and the government purchases any excess output and (2) the government buysall the farmers' output at the floor price and resells at whatever price it can get. Whichscheme will the farmers prefer? Which scheme will wheat buyers prefer?

Step 1

Hey, Thank you for the question. According to our policy we can only answer 3 subparts per question. If you need further help, post the question again and mention the subpart you want us to solve. Also, since you have asked for the graph, we will answer subparts a,b,c for you.

Step 2

a)

When government imposes price floor, the equilibrium price is \$15 which now increases to \$21. There will be excess of supply as the price is above the equilibrium level, the quantity demanded at this price level is 8000 units and the quantity supplied is 30000 units. There is an excess supply of 22000 units (30000-8000)

Step 3

b)

If the government decides to purchase excess of the product at floor pric...
