A question I got on an exam that I think I messed up on: If we have cross elasticity of 0 (x & y are independent), can x be an inferior good? I answered with a yes. Am I wrong?

    $\begingroup$ The interesting thing would be to tell us why you answered yes, or at least why now you think that you should have answered no. $\endgroup$ – Alecos Papadopoulos Jan 30 '19 at 20:46
  • $\begingroup$ Why I answered yes: ran out of time, why I think I'm wrong: I can't think of such a function $\endgroup$ – user20950 Jan 30 '19 at 20:47
  • $\begingroup$ @AlecosPapadopoulos do you have an answer at least? :/ $\endgroup$ – user20950 Jan 30 '19 at 21:26
  • $\begingroup$ Possibly, but not yet. $\endgroup$ – Alecos Papadopoulos Jan 30 '19 at 21:29
