Transatlantic air travel in business class has an estimated elasticity of demand of 0.40 less than transatlantic air travel in economy class, which has an estimated price elasticity of 0.62. Why do you think this is the case?
A firm believes the elasticity of demand it faces in its own country is -1.1 and in the other country is -1.5. Suppose the firm can charge $1 for its products in its own country and can prevent resales between these two countries. What price will it charge in the other country?
Star wars coffee mugs are traded in a competitive world market with a price of R180 per cup. Unlimited quantities are available for import into South Africa at this price. On average 10 000 kg are traded each month. The elasticity of demand has been estimated at -0.81 and elasticity of supply at 3.51. Derive the demand equation for the star wars coffee mug. . . A. Qd = 12 800 - 45P B. Qd = 15 200 - 35P C. Qd = 18 100 - 45P D. Qd = 20 000 - 50P Note:- Do not provide handwritten solution. Maintain accuracy and quality in your answer. Take care of plagiarism.
