Y = w + b 2-1 4 . (c) âˆ‚H âˆ‚b =-1 2 w . The labor supply will decrease when unearned income increases. (d) âˆ‚Y âˆ‚b = 1 2 . The consumption will increase when unearned income increases. (e) âˆ‚H âˆ‚w =-1 + 2 b 4 w 2 =-11 4 w 2 . Positive eï¬€ect of increase in wage on labor supply and meanwhile negative eï¬€ect on leisure. It indicates that (1)either substitution eï¬€ect (-) and income eï¬€ect (-) are in the same direction and L is a inferior good; (2) or substitution eï¬€ect (-) dominates income eï¬€ect (+) and L is a normal good. 3...
