1/4/2008 8 Isocost Line Definition: Set of input bundles that cost the same, given w and r. Say total cost is TC 0 . If use only labor then wL 0 = TC 0 → L 0 = TC 0 / w If use only capital then rK 0 = TC 0 → K 0 = TC 0 / r L K TC 0 /r TC 0 /w
1/4/2008 9 Question What is slope of an isocost line? A. TC 0 /w B. TC 0 /r C. r/w D. w/r L K TC 0 /r TC 0 /w
