Comparative Static Analysis Significance: sometimes no explicit reduced form solution can be obtained. Hence, we will have to find the comparative static derivatives directly from the original equation of the model. 0 0 0 0 0 0 ( , ) ( , ) Y C I G C C Y T Y C Y T I G = + + = = + +
Comparative Static Analysis 0 0 0 ( , , ) Y Y I G T = 0 0 0 At neighborhood of Y the following identical equality will hold: ( , ) Y C Y T I G = + + 0 0 Partial differentiation, ,does not do the job as T can affect C not only directly, but also indirectly via Y. We must resort to total differentiation, based on the notion of total differential Y T s. Because of the general form of the C function, no explicit solution is available.
