Textbook Question
Chapter 34, Problem 57P

The country of Pepperland exports steel to the Land of Submarines. Information for the quantity demanded (Qd) and quantity supplied (Qs) in each country, in a world without trade, are given in Table 34.6 and Table 34.7.

1. What would be the equilibrium price and quantity in each country in a world without trade? How can you tell?
2. What would be the equilibrium price and quantity in each country if trade is allowed to occur? How can you tell?
3. Sketch two supply and demand diagrams, one for each country, in the situation before trade.
4. On those diagrams, show the equilibrium price and the levels of exports and imports in the world after trade.
5. If the Land of Submarines imposes an anti- dumping import quota of 30, explain in general terms whether it will benefit or injure consumers and producers in each country.
6. Does your general answer change if the Land of Submarines imposes an import quota of 70?

If Bangladesh is open to international trade of wheat without any restrictions, it will import the full value for your answer, accounting for the horizontal axis units.) Suppose the Bangladeshi government wants to reduce imports to exactly 200,000 bushels of wheat to help domestic producers. A tariff of S per bushel will achieve this. A tariff set at this level would raise \$ bushels of wheat. (Note: Be sure to enter in revenue for the Bangladeshi government.
The following graph shows the domestic supply of and demand for maize in Bangladesh. The world price (Pw) of maize is \$255 per ton and is represented by the horizontal black line. Throughout the question, assume that the amount demanded by any one country does not affect the world price of maize and that there are no transportation or transaction costs associated with international trade in maize. Also, assume that domestic suppliers will satisfy domestic demand as much as possible before any exporting or importing takes place. 455 Domestic Demand Domestic Supply 430 405 380 355 330 305 280 Pw 255 230 205 200 250 300 350 400 450 500 QUANTITY (Tons of maize) If Bangladesh is open to international trade in maize without any restrictions, it will import 300 tons of maize. Suppose the Bangladeshi government wants to reduce imports to exactly 100 tons of maize to help domestic producers. A tariff of \$ per ton will achieve this. A tariff set at this level would raise \$ in revenue for the…
The world price of wine is below the price that would prevail in Canada in the absence of trade. Assume that Canadian imports of wine are a small part of total world wine production. The following graph shows the Canadian market for wine under free trade. Use the green triangle (triangle symbol) to shade consumer surplus when Canada is open to trade. Then use the purple triangle (diamond symbol) to shade producer surplus in this case. Price of Wine Domestic Demand Quantity of Wine Domestic Supply World Price Consumer Surplus Producer Surplus (?)
