Answer to Question #91688 in Microeconomics for John Manda

Question #91688
Wheat is produced under perfectly competitive conditions. Individual wheat farmers have U-shaped, long-run average cost curves that reach a minimum average cost of $3 per bushel when 1,000 bushels are produced.

b) Suppose demand shifts outward to QD = 3,200,000 - 200,000P. If farmers cannot adjust their output in the short run, what will market price be with this new demand curve? What will the profits of the typical farm be?

In the long-run free-entry equlibrium p=$3

Demand Q= 3,200,000- (200,000X3)= $2,600,000

Suppose Q=2,600,000, the price=6

Hence firm's make profits= (6X1000)- (3X1000)= $3000
