Finally, a place based policy is promising if the place has a natural comparative advantage that is typically based on its geographic location. If the location does not have a comparative advantage, it might be time for younger households to relocate to a different place. (d) We would call this a place-paced policy since it primarily affected the workers and managers that work for GMM and Chrysler. Many of these workers live in the “Rust Belt.” Problem 2: Tiebout Sorting (40 percent) (a) Suppose all individuals live in community 1, then we know that ¯ y 1 = Z 1 x f ( x ) dx = 0 . 5 (1) since f ( x ) = 1 if x ∼ U [0 , 1]. Consider the richest person with income equal to 1. His utility from staying is U = (1 + 1) (1 + 0 . 5)- c 1 = 3- c 1 (2) If he moves to community 2 that mean income will be equal to one, i.e. ¯ y 2 = 1 and the utility in community 2 will be:...
