14-5 Chapter 14 Quick Quizzes
1. When a competitive firm doubles the amount it sells, what happens to the price of its output and its total revenue.
2. How does the price faced by a profit-maximizing competitive firm compare to marginal cost? Explain. When does profit-maximizing competition firm decide to shut down? When does a profit-maximizing firm decide to exit a market?
3. In the long run with free entry and exit, is the price in a market equal to the marginal cost, average total cost, both, or neither? Explain with a diagram.
Chapter 12 and 13 Quick Quizzes
Chapter 12 Quick Quizzes
  1. What are the two most important sources of tax revenue for the federal government? What are the two most important sources of tax revenue for state and local governments?
  2. What is meant by the efficiency of a tax system? What can make a tax system inefficient?
  3. Explain the benefits principle and the ability-to-pay principle? What are vertical equity and horizontal equity? Why is studying tax incidence important for determining equity of a tax system?

Chapter 13 Quick Quizzes
  1. Farmer McDonald gives banjo lessons for $20 an hour. One day, he spends 10 hours planting $100 worth of seeds on his farm. What opportunity cost has he incurred? What cost would his accountant measure? If the seeds will yield $200 worth of crops, does McDonald earn an accounting profit? Does he earn an economic profit?
  2. If Farmer Jones plants no seeds on his farm, he gets no harvest. If he plants 1 bag of seeds, he gets 3 bushels of wheat. If he plants 2 bags, he gets 5 bushels. If he plants 3 bags, he gets 6 bushels. A bag of seeds costs $100, and seeds are his only cost. Use these data to graph the farmerís production function and total-cost curve. Explain their shapes.
  3. Suppose Hondaís total cost of producing 4 cars is $225,000 and its total cost of producing 5 cars is $250,000. What is the average total cost of producing 5 cars? What is the marginal cost of the 5th car? Draw the marginal cost curve and the average-total-cost curve for a typical firm, and explain why these curves cross where they do.
Ch. 10 Externalities Quick Quizzes

1. Give an example of negative externality and a positive externality. Explain why market outcomes are inefficient in the presence of externalities.
2. Give an example of a private solution to an externality. What's the Coase theorem? Why are private economic participants sometimes unable to solve the problems caused by an externality?

3. A glue factory and a steel mill emit smoke containing a chemical that is harmful if inhaled in large amounts. Describe three ways the town government might respond to this externality. What are the pros and cons of each solution?
Ch. 8 Quick Quizzes
1. Draw the supply and demand curve for cookies. If the government imposes a tax on cookies, show what happens to the quantity sold, the price paid by buyers, and the price paid to sellers. In your diagram, show the deadweight loss from the tax. Explain the meaning of the deadweight loss.
2. The demand for beer is more elastic than the demand for milk. Would a tax on beer or a tax on milk have larger deadweight loss? Why?
3. If the government doubles the tax on gasoline, can you be sure the revenue from the gasoline tax will rise? Can you be sure that the deadweight loss from the gasoline tax will rise? Explain.
Ch. 7 Quick Quizzes
Ch. 7 Quick Quizzes: Consumers, Producers, & the Efficiency of Markets
1. Draw a demand curve for turkey. In your diagram, show a price of turkey and the consumer surplus that results from that price. Explain in words what the consumer surplus measures.
2. Draw a supply curve for turkey in your diagram, show a price of turkey and the producer surplus that results from that price. Explain in words what this producer surplus measures.
3. Draw the supply and demand for turkey. In the equilibrium, show producer and consumer surplus. Explain why producing more turkeys would lower total surplus.
Ch. 6 Quick Quizzes
6-6 Chapter 6: Supply, Demand, and Government Policies - Quick Quizzes
1. Define price celiing and price floor and give an example of each. Which leads to a shortage? Which leads to a surplus? Why?

2. In a supply-and-demand diagram, show how a tax on car buyers of $1,000 per car affects the quantity of cars sold and the price of cars. In another diagram, show how a tax on car sellers of $1,000 per car affects the quantity of cards sold and the price of cars. In both of your diagrams, show the change in the price paid by car buyers and the change in price received by car sellers.
