Question 1.

All of the following occur whenever a government taxes a product except

• the quantity consumed of that product falls.

• the price of that product rises.

• the marginal benefit of the last unit sold exceeds the marginal cost of producing it.

• there will be no excess burden if the government's tax revenue is sufficiently large to offset the deadweight loss.

Question 2.

The "ability-to-pay" principle of taxation is the normative idea that

• an equitable tax system is one in which high income individuals should bear a greater burden of taxes than low income individuals.

• each individual should voluntarily contribute according to her ability to pay taxes.

• progressive taxes are more equitable than regressive taxes.

• two individuals earning the same income should have equal ability to pay, all else constant.
