Chapter 8 - Slutsky Equation 1. We want a way to decompose the effect of a price change into “simpler” pieces. (a) thats what analysis is all about (b) break up into simple pieces to determine behavior of whole 2. Break up price change into a pivot and a shift (see figure 8.2. in the textbook). (a) these are hypothetical changes (b) we can examine each change in isolation and look at sum of two changes 3. Change in demand due to pivot is the substitution effect . (a) this measures how demand changes when we change prices, keeping purchas- ing power of income fixed (b) how much would a person demand if he had just enough money to consume the original bundle? (c) this isolates the pure effect from changing the relative prices (d) substitution effect must be negative due to revealed preference “negative” means quantity moves opposite the direction of price 4. Change in demand due to shift is the income effect . (a) increase income, keep relative prices the same

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
