Everytime he sells one of these he has to hand over \$5.00 (shifts supply curve up by \$5)- So applying a tax is like shifting the supply curve up by the amount of the tax.- Supply curve shifted up, demand curve did not move, what does that mean?- we are going to have a new price and quantity in the market- Pg 117- Three Points to pay attention:- old equilibrium, after we add the tax there is a new equilibrium; however thats not what the seller gets, that’s what the customer pays.- e.g. customer is pay \$8 dollars rather than \$5 but the seller is going to receive \$3- Sample Problem #2- Consider the following supply and demand curve- Original: P = 10+2.3Q and P=34-2Q- Apply a tax shift UP by amount of tax \$8 Tax?- P=18+2/3Q and P = 34-2QThese notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture. GradeBuddy is best used as a supplement to your own notes, not as a substitute.- So- 18+2/3Q = 34-2Q and- 2.67Q = 16 so- Q=6- Q=, then P=22- The price the consumer pays is 22.- The tax is \$8…- The price the producer receives is \$14These notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture.
