ECON203 Microeconomic Analysis (Session 2, 2018)
Application assessment 1
Ticket scalping
Something I’m sure we’ve all experienced is the frustration that comes with trying to
purchase tickets online for a big event (concert, sporting fixture etc) only to see all the
available seats sold in a shockingly short time, and before we even get a chance to
purchase any. It doesn’t help those feeling to see tickets that we feel we could have

Consider the following discussions of the topic:
• ‘The economics of ticket scalping’
• ‘The man who

What are the relevant welfare effects of ticket scalping
e-sale (note that the choice of
descriptor is not neutral)? Who is made better and worse off by the existence of this
activity, and how are the gains and losses distributed?
Thinking back to the discussions around ethics in ECON111, are there fairness
considerations that would justify government action (or costly private action e.g.
purchase requirements that would lock out scalpers) even if ticket re-selling increases
the gains from trade?1
At times, grocery retailers have attempted to restrict bulk-buying of infant formula, as

consequentialist and the deontological approaches to evaluating moral outcomes J

It is not allowed to clear ticket in market. To clear the market of tickets, box office set the price of tickets is very low with secondary seller’s unlicensed street scalpers and licensed ticket
okers. This reseller of tickets purchase ticket at very low price and resell at higher price that is willing to purchase to meet the demand of market.
Recently we see the case of the tickets of NRL and AFL matches resold in market at price up to three times of its initial price. So main question is why ticket scalping is happened?
As an economist, the market where tickets are sold, there is an existence of secondary market. It is sign of sign of underpriced and undersupplied tickets market or combination of both. The other platform I for make tickets easier to resell is online reselling platform. In this case, double...
