3To Charlie, the marginal benefit (MB) of national defense is MB = 4,500 – 90Q, where Q measures units of national defense. Sally’s marginal benefit is MB = 3,000 – 60Q.  The marginal cost of providing national defense is constant and equal  to $2,700. Calculate the efficient quantity of national defense. Graph  aggregate MB and MC to illustrate the efficient quantity  of national defense (label functions and include all relevant values in  the graph). Assume policymakers are able to choose the efficient level  of national defense because they know each voter’s marginal benefit  function. If tax shares are set to force each person to pay exactly what  they think national defense is worth at the optimal level, what is  Charlie’s tax share and what is Sally’s tax share
