– Trace substitution effect only 26 Marshallian
Marshallian Demand
1. Holds money income constant
2. Utility varies along the demand curve
3. Incorporates both income and substitution effects
4. Slopes down, but theoretically could slope up 27 Hicksian
Hicksian Demand
1. Holds utility constant
2. Money income varies along the demand curve
3. Incorporates only the substitution effect
4. Always slopes down 28 Marshallian and Hicksian Demand Curves
