Explain production externality, Macroeconomics

Bob's Bee is a small boutique honey manufacturer in Texas.  Bob's neighbor is Jon's James.  The more honey Bob produces, the more jam Jon is able to produce; that is, there is a positive production externality.

  1. Suppose that the government of Texas imposes a new tax on jam and honey production.  Will the deadweight loss of this tax be greater, smaller, or the same as if there were no production externality?  Graphically explain your answer.
  2. How would your answer change if the production externality were negative (perhaps because Bob's bees sting Jon's jam-makers)? Graphically explain your answer.
