(d) Assume that h = 5000 hours, π = $30000, w = $10 /hour , and and t = 0 . 25 . Calculate the optimal consumption, leisure, and labor supply for the consumer. (e) Now assume that the tax rate is increased to t = 0 . 50 . Calculate the new values consumption, leisure, and labor supply. What happened to these variables as a result of the tax increase. 3.
