(All parameters are statistically significant at 1 percent level). A. Is good X a normal or inferior good? Explain The good X is inferior because it has an inverse relation with the income as it is obvious from the demand function for good X above. The demand for good X is countercyclical which means that X is inferior good that will rise during the recessions when the income is decreased. For example, the demand for X tends to decrease as incomes rise because consumers replace them with more desirable alternatives. B. Are X and R substitutes or complements? Explain X and R are substitute products. A rise in P R causes an increase in the demand for X. Apparently, there is a direct relation between A and R, and we can see the sign + in front of the price of R, so...
