2: Refer to Chapter 7- Market Failure and Government Policy

(a) Vaccination rates in children up since ‘no jab, no pay’ introduced, Federal Government says

The Federal Government is heralding its "no jab, no pay" policy as having led to an extra 5,700 children being vaccinated since its implementation at the start of the year.

The policy involves the withholding of family payments worth up to $15,000 per year to parents who fail to have their children vaccinated. Parents who conscientiously object to vaccination for philosophical or religious reasons are also not able to collect the payments.

Since the policy was introduced in January, the immunisation rate for one and five-year-olds has now reached 93 per cent, up from around 90 per cent when the plan passed Federal Parliament. 

(i) Describe the type of externality associated with vaccinations and explain why a private market would underprovide vaccinations 
(ii) Draw a graph to illustrate the external benefit of vaccinations
(iii) What alternative policies can encourage the uptake of vaccination? 

(b) One form of negative externality is global warming and climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. Discuss at least three plausible policy alternatives to address this market failure.

(ii) Based on your analysis of the above data, where would you place Australia in the business cycle? Explain your reasoning. 

(b) In terms of the Australian circular flow of income, are the following examples net injections, net withdrawals or neither? If there’s uncertainty, explain your assumptions.
(i) Firms are forced to take a cut in profits in order to give a pay rise
(ii) Firms spend money on research
(iii) The government increases the tax-free threshold
(iv) The general public invests more money in credit unions
(v) Australian investors earn higher dividends on overseas investments
