Elasticity, Production and Cost in the Firm
When a government wants to increase tax revenue, they will often increase the sales tax on gasoline. Using price elasticity of demand, describe why the tax would be placed on gasoline rather than, say, yachts. What might be the long run effect of raising the price of gas?
The shape of the long-run cost curve is determined by economies and diseconomies of scale. Contrast this curve with the short-run cost curve as it relates to increasing and diminishing marginal returns to labor.
(Determinants of Price Elasticity) Why is the price elasticity of demand for Coca-Cola greater than the price elasticity of demand for soft drinks generally?
