Hi, please help me with these questions. Thank you
5. There are two ﬁrms, 1 and 2. Prior to regulation, ﬁrm 1 creates 200 tons of NO;emissions (N03 is a criteria pollutant) each year, while ﬁrm 2 creates 100 tons eachyear. Because they use different production processes, their marginal abatement curvesare given by MAC1 = 20 + 221 and MACE = 80, respectively. The regulator would liketo reduce the total amount of emissions from both ﬁrms by 150 tons in the followingyear and is considering a variety of prescriptive regulations to do so. (a) As a baseline, assume that the regulator knows MACH and MACE and is ableto impose individual standards on each ﬁrm. Calculate the amount of abatementthat the regulator will require of each ﬁrm (AI and A3]. Also calculate DWL, if there is any. (b) For legal reasons, the regulator is only permitted to use a uniform stande that forces each ﬁrm to reduce by 75 tons each. What is the DWL from this policy?It may be helpful to draw a picture. (c) Suppose the regulator instead chooses to ask each ﬁrm to abate 50% of what they produced last year. Since the ﬁrms originally created BUD tons of emissions, thiswill still rwult in a 150 ton reduction in emissions. 1What is the DWL from this policy? Again, it may be helpful to draw a picture. (d) Using concepts we learned in class describe (in 1-3 sentences) why the DWI. inquestion 0 is larger than the DWL in question b, even though it seems to be morefair to ask ﬁrm 1, the larger polluter, to reduce more.
