Intermediate Microeconomics, 2010 Problem Set 11: Exercises 1. A Quasilinear Economy: Suppose Y = 2, c ( q ) = q + q 2 and U ( m;q ) = m + ln q . The price of money m is always one. Di±erent from before, we allow m to be negative. (a) Find the (inverse) supply and demand functions, P S ( q ) and P D ( q;Y ). (b) Find the competitive equilibrium price and quantity, i.e., q s.t., P S ( q ± ) = P D ( q ± ;Y ). What is the pro²t of the ²rm? How much money m has the consumer left in her pocket? (c) Find the (Marshallian-) Demand function for

(d) You probably know already that quasilinear preferences have an important im-plication for the Slutsky Decomposition: If the price changes, demand changes only because of the Substitution E±ect. Can you show that this is the case? Use either a graph or the formal decomposition into elasticities. 1...
