In this Assignment, you will be assessed on the following outcome: BU224-2:Examine changes in price and quantity caused when governments take actions to modify market outcomes. Assignment In a perfectly competitive market, the equilibrium price and quantity represent the most efficient operation of that market. Optimum efficiency means that sellers cannot be made better off without, at the same time, making buyers worse off, and that buyers cannot be made better off, without making the sellers worse off. This Assignment presents a scenario in which a government tries to improve the financial position of the sellers, in such a perfectly competitive market, by instituting a legal price floor that is significantly above the equilibrium price. A price floor is the lowest price for which a seller can legally sell the product. In this Assignment, you will focus on calculating the consumer surplus, producer surplus and total surplus both before a price floor is established and after a price floor is enacted. You will also demonstrate an understanding of the impact on the entire economy, based on any changes in taxes required, if the government is to purchase any extra product that is not sold to consumers. Questions Suppose that the Gondwanaland Chairman of Production whosets the governmental price floor for gosum berries, in an effort to assist the gosum berry producers to have a higher income, setthe price floor at $70 per barrel. These berries are a food staple of the Gondwanalandians and contributes directly to their health and long life (average lifespan of 150+ active years). In that particular year the amount of gosum berries produced at the $70 price floor was 700 barrels per month. To support the price of gosum berries, the Chairman of Production’s Office had to purchase 400 barrels per month. The accompanying diagram shows supply and demand curves illustrating the market for Gondwanaland gosum berries. a. In the absence of a price floor, the maximum price that a few of the consumers are willing to pay up to $100 per barrel of gosum berries. The market equilibrium (E) price is $50 per barrel. How much consumer surplus is created, when there is no price floor? Show your calculations. b. How much producer surplus when there is no price floor? Show your calculations. c. What is the total surplus when there is no price floor?Show your calculations. d. After the price floor is instituted, the legal minimum price that can be charged by suppliers is $70 per barrel. The maximum price that a few of the consumers are still willing to pay is $100 per barrel of gosum berries. With the price floor at $70 per barrel, consumers buy 300 barrels of gosum berries per month. How much consu
