There is a single firm producing the two outputs according to the production frontier described by x 2 + y 2 = 100, x, y ≥ 0. 44) Profits of the firm, , are Robinson’s only source of income. The firm sells guavas for a price p x and scallops for the price py ; p x , p y ≥ 0: = px x + p y y. 45) Robinson’s household income then is Y = . 46) His consumption of guavas is denoted g and of scallops is denoted s. The household budget constraint then is Y = px g + py s. 47) Robinson has a utility function u(g, s).
It says that when the price of x is high, the firm skews production toward more x. Robinson’s household income, then, is Y = . 41) His demand for fish is denoted f , and of wood is denoted w. The household budget constraint then is Y = p x f + py w. 42) 28 An elementary general equilibrium model: The Robinson Crusoe economy Robinson has a utility function u(f, w). The function u is defined for f , w ≥ 0; u is strictly increasing in f, w. (a) Describe Robinson’s consumption decision. You do not need to solve for numerical values of f, w (there is insufficient information provided).
