1/1/11 We learned how to maximize the utility of a consumer considering the budget constraint. Assuming the strictly convex indifference curves, the optimal point is at the tangency point of the budget and indifference curves, and the consumer uses the positive amounts of both goods (MRS=MRT). Now the question is finding out how the consumer’s consumption changes when the price of for
