Otherwise, the monopoly could control prices and output with no restrictions at all. Also, sometimes government must set price ceilings or price floors in order to try to fix the problems of shortages and surpluses. By setting these price levels, the government helps bring the price and quantity back to equilibrium position, where the quantity demanded = quantity supplied. Read more: ] (More)
