Price Levels

Prove that a uniform standard will not meet the cost effectiveness criterion.

5. Assume that two power plants, Firm 1 and Firm 2 release sulfur dioxide (SO2) in a small urban community that exceeds the emissions standard. To meet the standard, 30 units of SO2 must be abated in total. The two firms face the following abatement costs: MAC1=16+0.5A1 MAC2=10+2.5A2 where costs are measured in thousands

Short Run Economics

EOQ

A firm annually sells 7,890 units. The cost of placing an order is $100 and the carrying costs are $2 a unit. What is the EOQ, the duration of the EOQ, and how many orders are placed annually? If the safety stock is 100 units, what are the maximum and average levels of inventory?

The expected social cost of an accident

Let w be the marginal cost of precaution, x be the level of precaution, p(x) be the probability of an accident, and A be the accident losses. *Assume unilateral precaution. True, False, or Uncertain. If the marginal cost of precaution do not rise with the level of precaution taken, the efficient level of precaution (X*) will
