Suppose two firms compete in an industry with an inverse demand function given by P = 200 − 2Q . Each firm has a marginal cost of $40. a. Solve for the monopoly profits, quantity, and price.

Suppose two firms compete in an industry with an inverse demand function given by P = 200 − 2Q . Each firm has a marginal cost of $40. a. Solve for the monopoly profits, quantity, and price. b. Solve for the Cournot Nash Equilibrium. State the quantities and profits for each firm and the market price.c. Suppose firm 2 produced ½ of the joint profit maximizing output (i.e., colluded) and firm 1 cheated. What would be firm 1’s one-period profit maximizing output be? What is the resulting market price? d. What would firm 1’s profits be under this scenario (in part c)? e. Suppose these firms compete repeatedly, such that the end of the game is unknown. At the end of each year, the probability the firms will compete against each other again is given as .6 and they discount future profits at a rate of .8. What is the present discounted value of expected profits if both firms collude in each period? f. Suppose firm 1 believes that firm 2 has adopted a “grim trigger strategy” in which they will produce half the joint profit maximizing output if firm 1 always does the same, but if firm 1 ever produces more then firm 2 will punish by producing the Cournot equilibrium output level forever after. What is the present discounted value of profits for firm 1 if they decide to cheat in the first period. g. Can the firms sustain collusion in equilibrium?

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"
Rajab M.Rajab M. has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
