### Leontif case for Edgeworth box

Consumer 1 has utility $u_1=min\{x_1,y_1\}$, Consumer 2 has utility $u_1=min\{x_1,2y_1\}$, their endowments are $w_1=(a,0)$ and $w_1=(b,0)$ and in this case $a=b$. I know the offer curves look like ...

### CES utility function in an Edgeworth box

Two consumers have the CES utility function $x_1^\beta +x_2^\beta$, for $0<\beta<1$, their initial endowments are $w^1=(1,0)$, $w^2=(0,1)$ Draw the Core of this economy in an Edgeworth box. Note ...

I am trying to derive the Utility Possibility Frontier (UPF) when both utility functions display perfect substitutes (in an Edgeworth economy with to consumers and two goods). The specific problem: $... • 3 1 vote 0 answers 92 views ### Pareto Set with strictly convex preferences Suppose the agents A and B have the following utility functions$x_A y_A+12x_A+3y_A $and$x_By_B +8x_B+9y_B$respectively with endowments (8,30) and (10,10). The contract curve's equation turns out ... • 227 4 votes 1 answer 222 views ### Contract curve and Pareto frontier Consider an exchange economy with two agents. Each agent$i \in \{1,2\}$derives utility$u^i(x_1,x_2) \in \mathbb R$by consuming$(x_1,x_2) \in \mathbb R_+^2$. Let$u_j^i(x_1,x_2) = \partial u^i(...
