Monopsony, Microeconomics

Monopsony:

  1. Demonstrate (with a graph) how a minimum wage can increase both the wage and employment in a monopsony market even when the government sets the minimum wage above the wage that would be paid in a competitive market.
  2. Above what wage would a minimum wage render less employment than the monopsony market without a minimum wage?
  3. If the minimum wage was set at the competitive equilibrium wage (which would exist if not for the monopsonist), would there be any unemployment?
  4. If the minimum wage was set above the competitive equilibrium wage but below the MC of labor at the monopsony level of employment in a monopsony market, would there be any unemployment? If so, how much?
  5. The marginal cost of labor for a monopsonist is different from that faced by a firm in a competitive labor market. Describe the marginal costs of labor curves in each type of market. Why is the monopsonist's marginal cost curve steeply, positively sloped?
