PURPOSE  The objective of this assignment is to develop students’ ability to apply the knowlege of elasticity on  telecommunication  services,  and  identify  the  impact  of  the  government  placing  a  tax  on   telecommunication services.    REQUIREMENT      

“Poor  people  spend  generally  a  larger  portion  of  their  income  on  basic  goods,  such  as  food.  However,as they get rich, they buy an increasing proportion of luxury goods. The implication of this is  that demand for basic goods is likely to be low, and their demand rises  slowly as income rise, while  on the other hand demand for luxury goods is likely to be high”.     Identify whether telecommunication services (use of telecommunication) could be categorised as a  basic  good,  a  normal  good  or  a  luxury  good  using  the  knowledge  of  demand,  utility,  and  income  elasticity  of  demand.  Next,  determine  the  effect  on  profitability,  if  the  government  were  to  introduce a tax on telephone operators.  _________________________________________________________________________
