Consider the market for paper. Suppose that a paper factory dumps toxic waste into a nearby river, creating a negative externality for those living downstream from the factory. Producing an additional ton of paper imposes a constant external cost of \$220 per ton. The following graph shows the demand (private value) curve and the supply (private cost) curve for paper....

The graph illustrates the unregulated market for pulp and paper Price (dollars per ton into a river that runs through a small town. The marginal external cost of the dumped waste is equal to twice the marginal private cost. So the marginal social cost of producing pulp and paper is three times the marginal private cost. What is the quantity...

Suppose you have just been hired as the new production manager of Quest Steel. There are three plants currently producing ½ inch sheet steel of identical quality. Total cost of production in plant 1 is C1 = 1 + 10q1, Where q is measured in tones and C is in dollars. The total cost function in plant 2 is C2...

Suppose the figure to the right illustrates the market for toilet paper, where S, represents the marginal private cost of production and D, represents the marginal private benefit from consumption Companies that produce toilet paper bleach the paper to make it white. Some paper plants discharge the bleach into rivers and Lakes, causing substantial environmental damage. Assume that Sy represents...
