After recalculating costs and gross profit using the activity based costing method Moana Loa has a gross profit of just $1.45 and Malaysian has a gross profit of $2.26 making it more costly to produce but at the same time more profitable. Coffee bean Inc. in the future should use the Activity Based Costing method rather than their single allocation rate.

Cigarettes and alcohol are inelastic products because they can be said to be ‘necessities’ for some people. Those people may be addicted to those demerit goods, so even if the price is highly raised those people will still purchase those goods. The governments impose indirect tax on to those goods because they are aware of the consequences of those demerit goods. When the tax is imposed, the price of those goods will rise, which means that the quantity demanded may fall (though it might not be a large fall). However, the government prefers to impose tax on inelastic products like cigarettes and alcohol because this will not lead to the consequence of unemployment, which is caused by the large fall in demand for production.
