Microeconomics is a branch of economics that studies the market behavior of individual actors (usually firms and consumers) and the aggregation of their actions in different institutional frameworks (usually the market).

The expenditure function is always concave. Suppose you consume two goods. Suppose the price of one of those goods, say $p1$, increases. Suppose also that, rather than rebalance your demand, you inc …

I thought it might be helpful to discuss the LS condition in general as it pertains to the LS equilibrium: A Lind./Sam. equilibrium allows for a unique equilibrium price $q_i, \forall i \in {1,...,n … answered Sep 14 '16 by 123 This makes use of Weierstrass theorem: "Any continuous function mapping from a non-empty compact set to a a subset of$\mathbb{R}$attains a maximum and minimum. So, for example: We know by Hein … answered Oct 6 '15 by 123 This is a very poorly written question. The gist of the question is this: should a company take a lump-sum payment from a customer of \$8,525 or a \$12k payment that is spread uniformly over 12 year … answered Apr 9 '17 by 123 I will provide an actual answer because I strongly believe that embedding the rational expectations (RE) assumption into macroeconomic models is ridiculous. I will try to crystalize this in a concis … answered Sep 9 '18 by 123 Given a utility function of the form$U(a,b)=min\{a,b\}$. Suppose that currently$a<b$. To increase utility, you should allocate more of$a$to this person until$a=b$and then increase$a,b$proporti … answered Apr 7 '17 by 123 The Lindahl Equilibrium$y^*$with quasi-linear preferences is uniquely determined. That is,$y^*$is independent of individual consumption levels of$x$answered Jun 1 '16 by 123 To be a Pareto optimum, there must not exist another feasible allocation that makes every agent at least as well off and one or more agents strictly better off. So, let us consider the options here. … answered May 9 '16 by 123 So, you assume a finite stock of money units and also that the only thing any consumer desires is units of happiness. That is, consumers are utility maximizers and they have utilities that are functio … answered Jul 1 '16 by 123 $$(\frac{r}{w} \frac{1-\alpha}{\alpha})*K$$ $$\equiv (\frac{r}{w} \frac{1-\alpha}{\alpha})[\frac{y}{a}(\frac{w}{r} \frac{\alpha}{1-\alpha})^{1-\alpha}]$$$$\equiv (\frac{r}{w} \frac{1-\alpha}{\alpha}) … answered Dec 10 '16 by 123 HerrK. was correct in the comments. Sorry for the lapse. What is happening is that$U(x,y)=$max{$x,y$} with$P_x=P_y=P$causes a consumer to be indifferent between consumption bundles:$(\frac{w}{P} …

You needn't use the Lagrange here. And in general, this will be true for additively separable, linear utility functions. Note that the marginal rate of substitution between any two goods $i,j$ is a …
