Economics 11, Winter 2010; HW Assignment #7 Due 3:15PM Thursday Feb 25 1. Consider a two consumer economy with two goods; utility functions and endowments for the two consumers are u A ( x, y ) = xy , e A = (300 , 600) u B ( x, y ) = xy , e B = (100 , 400) (Notice that the consumers have the same utility functions but different endowments.) (a) find the contract curve (b) find equilibrium prices and choices (c) sketch an Edgeworth box showing the contract curve, equilibrium prices and choices 2. Consider a two consumer economy with two goods; utility functions and endowments for the two consumers are u A ( x, y ) = xy , e A = (300 , 600) u B ( x, y ) = x + 10 y , e B = (300 , 600) (Notice that the consumers have the same endowments but different utility functions.) (a) find the contract curve (b) find equilibrium prices and choices (c) sketch an Edgeworth box showing the contract curve, equilibrium prices and choices 3. Consider a two consumer economy with two goods; utility functions
