a. What is a good or service market that might be affected limiting pollution via the cap and trade policy as described in the article? Explain.

[For simplicity, do not choose "jobs" or employment. Choose a good or service that would have its supply or demand affected by the cap and trade policy.]

b. Which of the shifters that shift either supply or demand (SPEND or PYNTE) does a Cap and Trade policy affect in the market you chose in Part (a)? Which curve (supply or demand) would shift in response to the policy? Will it increase or decrease?

c. Draw a supply and demand graph. Start with an initial equilibrium like you see on Slide #25 in the Attend section. Shift the curve in the direction that you chose in the previous section. Find the new equilibrium. (You do not need to turn in your graph. It is for your own use.)

Did equilibrium price increase or decrease? Did equilibrium quantity increase or decrease?
