Figure 14.3 represents the market for used refrigerators. Suppose buyers are willing to pay $300 for a plum (high-quality) used refrigerator and $100 for a lemon (low-quality) used refrigerator. If buyers believe that 50% of the used refrigerators in the market are lemons (low quality), how much will they be willing to pay for a used refrigerator?

Figure 14.3 represents the market for used refrigerators. Suppose buyers are willing to pay $300 for a plum (high-quality) used refrigerator and $100 for a lemon (low-quality) used refrigerator. Initially buyers believe that 50% of used refrigerators in the market are lemons (low quality). Compared to the outcome with neutral expectations, how many fewer refrigerators are sold in equilibrium?

Figure 14.3 represents the market for used refrigerators. Suppose buyers are willing to pay $300 for a plum (high-quality) used refrigerator and $100 for a lemon (low-quality) used refrigerator. Compared to the situation when buyers have neutral expectations, if buyers believed that fewer than 50% of used refrigerators are lemons (low-quality):

▸ more plums (high-quality) used refrigerators would be on the market.

▸ fewer plums (high-quality) used refrigerators would be on the market.

▸ the same total number of used refrigerators would be on the market, but more of them would be plums (high-quality) used refrigerators.

▸ fewer lemons (low-quality) used refrigerators would be on the market.
