Based on the Mini-Case “Cheating on the Maple Syrup
Cartel,” what methods does the cartel use to discourage
cheating? Using the graph, explain why some maple
syrup producers cheat on the cartel despite efforts to
prevent cheating.
en

p
The figure shows the marginal cost (MC1) of one of the
firms in the market. The market supply curve is S. Let p
be the profit-maximizing price for the cartel. At the cartel
price, p, each cartel member is permitted to produce up
to a marginal cost of m, where the cartel market quantity
is Qm (and the quantity one firm is permitted to produce
IN
is Q1).

A. seizing the production of the cheating firm.
B. lowering the cartel production level.
C. ignoring the actions of the cheating firm.
D. enforcing the government’s antitrust legislation.
E. raising the price charged by firms that don’t
cheat.

You are given the market demand function
Q = 2200 – 1000p,
and that each duopoly firm’s marginal cost is \$0.10 per unit, which implies the cost function:
C
c(qi) = 0.10qi,
assuming no fixed costs for i = 1, 2.
The Cournot equilibrium quantities are 91 =
and 92
=
(enter your responses as whole numbers).
The Cournot equilibrium price is \$
(round to the nearest penny).
Calculate the Cournot profits: firm 1 \$
and firm 2 \$
(round both responses to the nearest cent).
