Pick the wrong answer. A. Wellfare is maximized in perfect competition. B. In a monopoly with perfect price differentiation (1st order) there is no deadweight loss. C. Expansive fiscal policy always reduces unemployment. D. Sometimes with a higher price there is a higher demand for a good.
I knew i can count on you. But you shouldn’t choose B -at least if you want to pass.
A and C are clearly wrong. B is also wrong. It is not possible to achieve perefect price discrimination. D is correct.
To give some hints… Statement in A is right. Statement in D is right.
Welfare? Do you mean social surplus?

welfare = social surplus
PPC is possible as long as a monopoly: Faces a downard sloping demand curvce knows of at least 2 different price elasticies from customers the customers buying the product @ the lower price can’t resell to consumers who would pay the higher price
To give the solution: C is the wrong statement you should choose.
For bonus points who wants to list why it’s wrong?
feel free getterdone
Is C wrong b/c sometimes inflation is too high for people to care about wanting a job and not working is more appealing? Their paycheck isn’t enough to pay for goods/services?
A: perfect competition does maximizes efficiency and wellfare B: This ne is true. In a monopoly with perfect price discrimination the former deadweight loss in the single-price monopoly transfers to the monopolist, it is all monopolist’s gain. C: an expansive fiscal policy is one that decreases taxes. It does increases whatever the employee takes home from his/her sallary (the after-tax wage), not necessarily decreasing unemployment. Increasing taxes increases unemployment and decreases real GDP, because work is a production factor. D:necesities
no c is wrong because Keynes is wrong
not when it’s anticipated. But again A is wrong and B is correct only if you make the wrong assumption that you can achieve PPD.
