### How Can I Model Demand Elasticity?

Can demand elasticity be determined by examining the distribution of marginal utility across a potential customer base? For example, if the distribution of marginal utility among potential customers ...

### Does continuous preference imply upper-hemi continuous demand correspondence?

Let alternative $x,y,z\in R^N$. $\succsim$ is convex, rational, monotonic, and continuous. Let $B=[y,z]$ be a budget segment. Let demand correspondence be $D[y,z]=\{x\in B||x\succsim B\}$ $D[y,z]$ is ...

### What should the supply demand curve of a half full stadium look like

Stadiums have perfectly inelastic supply so the graph is perpendicular, but what should the demand curve look like in a game that did not sell fully? Thank you for the answer.

### An attempt at using a graphing calculator to visualize the price elasticity of demand for a point moving on the demand curve

I assume a demand function ( of price) : $Q(x)= 10-2x$ , and therefore, a price function (of demand ): $P(x)= -\frac 12 x +5$. The demand curve ( $y =-\frac 12 x +5$) represents the price function, ...

### Checking negativity condition in demand system model

Let's assume you want to estimate a demand system model, e.g. the AIDS, based on observational data. Then you usually test first whether the homogeneity and symmetry condition hold in order to check ...

### Demand for minimum of $4$ different goods

The consumer has the utility function with $4$ goods $$U=\min\left \{ \sqrt{x+y},z+w \right \}$$ The prices are $p=(3,2,2,1)$ with wage $m=1$. Find the demand. So far I have observed that it is ...

### Unsolveable Demand/Utility Problem?

A consume has a preference relation on $\mathbb{R}^4_+$ with a utility function defined as $$U(x_1,x_2,x_3)=(\ln(3x_1+2x_2+x_3))^3$$ Find the demand at prices $p=(1,1,1)$ and wage $4$. Attempt I ...

### Demand curve is same as Marginal Benefit curve?

Demand curve is same as Marginal Benefit curve [Source: Microeconomics by Pindyck & Rubinfeld, Chapter 10, Section 5 - Monopsony]. I have only seen intuitive explanations for this statement. Can ...

### Concept of Utility in demand systems

I have seen that researchers use different utility function in demand systems estimation such as Stone Geary. What is the role of these utility functions? What are utility function other than stone ...

### Derive demand function from utility [closed]

Never encountered such a problem as I am new. $$U(x_1,x_2)=(a\ln(x_1)+b\ln(x_2))^n$$ and $a,b,n>0$ with income $w>0$ and prices $p_1,p_2>0$. Find the demand function. Attempt I am thinking ...

### Derive the market demand function and market supply function

In the second page of this paper Gjerstad et al derive the market demand and the supply for assets using the data shown in Table 1. The table is The demand function they find is $Q = 94 – 0.4 P$ and ...

### Why are constant price elasticities reported?

Price elasticity of demand $\mathrm{e_{D,P} = \dfrac{dD}{dP}. \dfrac{P}{Q^*}}$ clearly depends on the levels of price and quantity. Then why is everywhere (research papers, textbooks etc.) a constant ...

### Definition of strictly convex preference

Let $x,y\in X$. Does strictly convex preference (which implies that the utility is strictly quasiconcave) mean that: $x\succsim y$ implies $\alpha x+(1-\alpha)y\succ y$ for any $\alpha\in (0,1)$?
