Through interpreting the asymmetric destiny of producing industries in the course of the Nineteen Thirties, Michael Bernstein provides a strong new interpretation of the nice melancholy.

Example text

Each of the parallel straight lines in Fig. 15 depicts all bundles x that require the same level of total expenditure to acquire when facing prices p = (p1 , p2 ). Each of these isoexpenditure curves is defined implicity by e = p1 x1 + p2 x2 , for a different level of total expenditure e > 0. Each therefore will have the same slope, −p1 /p2 , but different horizontal and vertical intercepts, e/p1 and e/p2 , respectively. Isoexpenditure curves farther out contain bundles costing more; those farther in give bundles costing less.

By considering all possible values for p1 , we trace out the consumer’s entire demand curve for good 1 in Fig. 11(b). As you can easily verify, different levels of income and different prices of good 2 will cause the position and shape of the demand curve for good 1 to change. That position and shape, however, will always be determined by the properties of the consumer’s underlying preference relation. If we strengthen the requirements on u(x) to include differentiability, we can use calculus methods to further explore demand behaviour.

However, although u (x) is strictly positive for most values of x, it is zero whenever x = π + 2πk, k = 0, 1, 2, . . 9. Budget set, B = {x | x ∈ Rn+ , p · x ≤ y}, in the case of two commodities. x2 y/p 2 B Ϫp 1 p 2 y/p 1 x1 the budget constraint. t. p · x ≤ y. 5) Note that if x∗ solves this problem, then u(x∗ ) ≥ u(x) for all x ∈ B, which means that x∗ x for all x ∈ B. 4). The converse is also true. We should take a moment to examine the mathematical structure of this problem. As we have noted, under the assumptions on preferences, the utility function u(x) is realvalued and continuous.
