Lab 2 Exercise 4 Raafia Siddiqui 211098936 Comments (data view) The Cobb-Douglas Model In economy, there is a relation ship between output S, investment in labour L and investment in machinery M. It is given by the equation: S = f La_labour Ma_machinery a_labour and a_machinery are constants Total capital investment is given by: where e is a constant These equations suggest that uptput supply can be maximized by selecting appropriate values of L and M. This spreadsheet will investigate this rellationship graphically by plotting L as a function of M. S and K are parameters that will be used to maximize S. K = e L + M L = (S / ( f M a_machinery )) 1/a_labour = (K - M) / e
