A city has two newspapers. Demand for either paper depends on its own price and the price of its rival. Demand functions for paper A & B respectively, measured in tens of thousands of subscriptions are
21 - 2PA + PB and 21 + PA - 2PB
The marginal cost of printing and distributing an extra paper just equals the extra advertising revenue one gets from another reader, so each paper treats Marginal costs as zero. Each paper maximizes its revenue assuming that the other's price is independent of its own choice of price. If the paper enter a joint operating agreement where they set prices to maximize total revenue, by how much will newspaper prices rise?
