Textbook Question
Chapter 12, Problem 8SCQ

Four films called Elm, Maple, Oak, and (Shelly, produce wooden chairs. However, they also produce a great deal of garbage (a mixture of glue, varnish, sandpaper, and wood scraps). The first row of Table 12.6 shows the total amount of garbage (in tons) that each film currently produces. The other rows of the table show the cost of reducing garbage produced by the first five tons, the second five tons, and so on. First, calculate the cost of requiring each firm to reduce the weight of its garbage by one-fourth. Now, imagine that the government issues marketable permits for the current level of garbage, but the permits will shrink the weight of allowable garbage for each film by one-fourth. What will be the result of this alternative approach to reducing pollution?

Price 0 ABC D₂ Multiple Choice Quantity S₁ and D₁ represent the current market supply and demand, respectively. S2 and D2 represent the socially optimal supply and demand. One way that the government could shift demand to its socially optimal level is to tax the sellers subsidize the buyers. tax the buyers
19. This next question will require you to draw on what you have learned about supply and demand and taxes. A study finds that leaf blowers make too much noise; therefore it is considered a externality, so the government imposes a \$10 tax on the sale of every unit to correct for the social cost of the noise pollution. The tax completely internalizes the externality. Before the corrective tax, Leaves are Us Manufacturing regularly sold blowers for \$100 and market quantity is 300. Draw the supply and demand curve for leaf blowers. Label the axes, the curves, market price, market quantity, and equilibrium. Which curve represents private or internal costs? represents external and private costs? This is also known as What is the private market price? What is the private market quantity? Which curve costs. After the tax is in place, the consumer price of leaf blowers rises to \$105. With this change in price, the number of leaf blowers will (decrease/increase). Why will this happen?
8.2 Oxana is conducting research on the demand for cleaner air in Novosibersk. She notices that the Ministry of Housing built many identical dwellings around the city approximately the same distance from the center. The only difference is the average level of air pollution. She notes the following rental prices and air pollution levels for these dwellings: Pollution level (µg/m³) Rent (R/month) 30 497 50 492 70 485 90 475 120 455 150 430 200 375 250 305 300 219 Plot the relationship between pollution levels (on the horizontal axis) and rent (on the ver- tical axis). On a separate graph, plot the relationship between pollution levels (on the horizontal axis) and the marginal valuation of pollution implicit in the relationship between rents and pollution levels (on the vertical axis).
