Which of the following statements about environmental standards and emissions taxes is correct? A) An emissions tax is a more efficient way to reduce pollution than an environmental standard, because an emissions tax leads to an equalization of the marginal cost of abatement from all sources. B) An environmental standard is a more efficient way to reduce pollution than an emissions tax, because an environmental standard can be structured to lead to an equalization of the reduction in pollution from all sources. C) If an emissions tax and environmental standards lead to the same total reduction in pollution, then they will also lead to the same reduction in pollution by individual polluters. D) It is easy to set emissions taxes at the correct level, since the relationship between emissions taxes and the reduction in emissions that they will induce has been extensively studied and is well-known. 39. In London, any motorist entering a particular area in the city center during certain specified times must pay a congestion fee equal to 5, with fines for non-compliance rising to as high as 120.

16 Section 2: Short answer questions Please answer on the examination paper Page 16 Question 1 (20 marks) The accompanying diagram illustrates your local electricity company s natural monopoly. The diagram shows the demand (D) curve for kilowatt-hours (kwh) of electricity, the company s marginal revenue (MR) curve, the marginal cost (MC) curve, and its average total cost (ATC) curve.

Illustrate the inefficiency this creates by shading the deadweight loss from the monopoly in the diagram below (6 marks).
17 Page 17 b. If the government imposes a price ceiling equal to the marginal cost, $0.30, will the monopolist make profits or lose money? Shade the area of profit (or losses) for the monopolist in the diagram below. If the government imposes this price ceiling, do you think the firm will continue to produce in the long run? (8 marks) c. If the government imposes a price ceiling of $0.50, how much will the monopolist produce? Will the monopolist make a profit or lose money? (6 marks)
