Question
  1. Assume that Canada is an importer of televisions and that there are no trade restrictions. Canadian consumers buy 1 million televisions per year, of which 400 000 are produced domestically and 600 000 are imported. 

 

a.

Suppose that a technological advance among Japanese television manufacturers causes the world price of televisions to fall by $100. Draw a graph to show how this change affects the welfare of Canadian consumers and Canadian producers and how it affects total surplus in Canada.

 

a.

After the fall in price, consumers buy 1.2 million televisions, of which 200 000 are produced domestically and 1 million are imported. Calculate the change in consumer surplus, producer surplus, and total surplus from the price reduction.

 

c.

If the government responded by putting a $100 tariff on imported televisions, what would this do? Calculate the revenue that would be raised and the deadweight loss. Would it be a good policy from the standpoint of Canadian welfare? Who might support the policy? Who might oppose it?

 

d.

Suppose that the fall in price is attributable not to technological advance but to a $100 per television subsidy from the Japanese government to Japanese industry. How would this affect your analysis?
