Economics (Monopoly Pricing)

posted by .

A monopolist produces a product whose demand price and production costs
vary with quality s and quantity q according to

P (s; q) = s (1 - q)
C (s; q) = s^2 q [s-squared multiplied by q]

Calculate the price and quality levels that a monopolist would choose, and the
corresponding quantity sold.

  • Economics (Monopoly Pricing) -

    A monopolist will produce where marginal cost = marginal revenue.
    Total revenue is P*Q = s(1-Q)*Q = sQ - sQ^2
    Total cost is s^2Q
    Take the first derivitive (with respect to Q):
    MR = s - 2sQ
    MC = s^2
    Take it from here, Solve for Q.
