Example text

The economist who remains neutral in the matter of people’s tastes may properly conclude that avoidable waste is the price paid for the acceptance of persuasive advertising. This wastage of resources is, of course, passed on to the community at large through the higher prices needed to cover the higher cost of more rapid obsolescence. 7 Introduction to the compensating variation 1 So far, we have used a single value V to be the measure of a good or bad. But following the Hicksian definition of consumer surplus (Hicks, 1939), we must recognize that, in general, there can be two useful ways of valuing a good or bad.

3 We are also to take care not to violate the ceteris paribus assumption for the demand curves for steel derived from all other steel-using goods, which requires that such demand curves be introduced in sequence, as will be explained in the following chapter. 6 Something more must now be said about this relationship between price and quantity. Beginning from a general equilibrium system, we could deduce that the amount of a good x that is bought depends not only on its own price but, in general, on the prices of all other goods and factors; also on tastes, on technical knowledge and on the distribution of resource endowments.

Conversely, his CV21 is the minimum sum he must receive, this being the (larger) sum that will maintain him on his I2 indifference curve. Now, if the welfare effect is normal (as posited), then whatever the price of the good x, the individual buys more of it the higher his real income, which – on a diagram with real income y on the vertical axis and good x on the horizontal axis – would show that, for a given slope of the indifference curves, the amount of x taken on the higher indifference curve is larger.
