a. Graphically, show how many parties Cassanova will host.
b. Suppose there is a fixed marginal external benefit, $ b , per party to Cassanova’s friends. Illustrate this on your graph.
c. What is the socially (no pun intended) optimal level of parties? How could the Social Committee induce Cassanova to throw this number?
d. On your graph, show the optimal subsidy per party and the total amount paid to Cas-sanova. Who gains and loses under this plan?
