Figure 14.5 represents the market for used cars. Suppose buyers are willing to pay $5,000 for a plum (high-quality) used car and$3,000 for a lemon (low-quality) used car. If buyers believe that 80% of used cameras in the market are lemons (low quality), what is consumers' willingness to pay ($X)? ▸$5,000

▸ $3,400 ▸$3,000

Suppose buyers are willing to pay$5,000 for a plum (high-quality) used car and \$3,000 for a lemon (low-quality) used car. Initially buyers believe that 80% of used cameras in the market are lemons (low quality). Compared to the outcome with these initial expectations, how many fewer cars are sold in equilibrium?▸ 50▸ 80▸ 110▸ The number of cars sold in equilibrium is the same as the outcome with neutral expectations.
