Unformatted text preview: Chapter Six Demand Properties of Demand Functions Comparative statics analysis of ordinary demand functions -- the study of how ordinary demands x 1 *(p 1 ,p 2 ,y) and x 2 *(p 1 ,p 2 ,y) change as prices p 1 , p 2 and income y change. Own-Price Changes How does x 1 *(p 1 ,p 2 ,y) change as p 1 changes, holding p 2 and y constant? Suppose only p 1 increases, from p 1 ’ to p 1 ’’ and then to p 1 ’’’. x 1 x 2 p 1 = p 1 ’ Fixed p 2 and y. p 1 x 1 + p 2 x 2 = y Own-Price Changes Own-Price Changes x 1 x 2 p 1 = p 1 ’’ p 1 = p 1 ’ Fixed p 2 and y. p 1 x 1 + p 2 x 2 = y Own-Price Changes x 1 x 2 p 1 = p 1 ’’ p 1 = p 1 ’’’ Fixed p 2 and y. p 1 = p 1 ’ p 1 x 1 + p 2 x 2 = y x 2 x 1 p 1 = p 1 ’ Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) Own-Price Changes p 1 = p 1 ’ Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) p 1 ’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. p 1 = p 1 ’ x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) p 1 ’ p 1 = p 1 ’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) p 1 ’ p 1 = p 1 ’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 ’ p 1 ’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 ’ p 1 ’’ p 1 = p 1 ’’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 ’ p 1 ’’ p 1 = p 1 ’’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 ’ p 1 ’’ p 1 ’’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 ’ p 1 ’’ p 1 ’’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Ordinary demand curve for commodity 1 Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 ’ p 1 ’’ p 1 ’’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Ordinary demand curve for commodity 1 Fixed p 2 and y. x 2 x 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 x 1 *(p 1 ’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’’) x 1 *(p 1 ’’) p 1 ’ p 1 ’’ p 1 ’’’ x 1 * Own-Price Changes Ordinary demand curve for commodity 1 p 1 price offer curve Fixed p 2 and y.
