1/4/10 For this class: log c = ln c lagrangian constraint + (y –p1c1 – p2c2) - (p1c1 + p2c2 – y) make economic decisions on real wages (w/p) If real wage increases, income effect on c increases and income effect of l increases If real wage increases, substitution effect on c increases, but substitution effect on l decreases L= leisure? C=consumption? Endowment point- point at which real wage in period one meets real wage in period two on the slope line. If optimization point is below endowment point then the person is a borrower. In this situation, consumer has negative savings. If optimization point is above

What students are saying

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
