Hey guys, I've been stuck on this one question and would really appreciate some help!
This is a 3rd year uni question just to inform you. Any kind of help is much appreciated!
Please answer the following questions. Make sure that you explain all the steps of your analysis and that you define any new notation that you use.
The Coca-Cola Company has outsourced the bottling of its soft drinks from the very start of the company. They even sold the right to bottle Coca-Cola to other firms. Some of these bottlers have exclusive territories in which they bottle, distribute and merchandise Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola Enterprises is one of them (independent of Coca-Cola Company) and they have the exclusive right to market, produce and distribute Coca-Cola in the U.K. Let the inverse demand for Coca-Cola in the U.K. be P = 10,000 – Q, where Q denotes the amount of Coca- Cola sold in the U.K.
The bottler’s marginal cost of bottling Coca-Cola is a constant denoted by b, the marginal cost of distributing Coca-Cola is a constant denoted by d, and the fixed amount they spend on marketing each year is denoted by M, where 1000 > M > 1. The Coca-Cola Company incurs marginal costs of producing the syrup, which are denoted by c. The Coca-Cola Company then sells the syrup to its bottlers (among them Coca-Cola Enterprises) for a price w and the bottlers then charge the price P to the retailers. Both the Coca-Cola Company and the Coca-Cola Enterprises are profit-maximisers.
Assume that a, b, c, d > 0 and (b + d + c) < 10,000.
a) Suppose Coca-Cola Enterprises is free to choose P, and Coca-Cola Company chooses w. Find expressions for the optimal levels of P* and w*.
b) Now suppose that resale price restrictions could be enforced legally, so that Coca-Cola Company chooses the prices w and P. Let w’ and P’ denote the equilibrium prices. Find an expression for P’. Will P’ be greater than or less than P*?
c) Does making maximum resale prices illegal per se improve welfare (in the sense of consumer plus producer surplus)? Please answer the question with “yes” or “no” and give an explanation for your answer in 100 words maximum.
