Microeconomics Spring 2020 Final Project Due: July 3rd 17:00 In th e final projec t, you should finish the following two parts which account for 100 points in total. There is also a bonus part which accounts for 20 points. Your final project should be in English with 12 -point font size and 1.5 line space, and should be submitted in a pdf file. Whereas you can use calculator or computer software to obtain numerical results, you should be clear about each step of your analysi s. The evaluation of your final project will depend on the clarity and novelty of your model, and the accuracy and completeness of your analysis. You should work on the project on your ow n. Any form of cheating or plagiarism will result in a fail of your final gr ade of this course . Part I . Consumer Theory and General Equilibrium (40 points) I. Model 1. Specify two goods. For example: food F and clothing C 2. Specify two consumers’ utility functions. For example: 1(,)= 0.50.5, 2(,)= 0.40.6. II. Analysis 1. For each consumer , = 1,2, solve the following problems . a. Draw an indifference curve by connecting multiple consumption bundles. b. Derive the marginal rate of substitution ( MRS ) from the utility function. c. Given the prices, , , and the income , express and dr aw the budget constraint. d. Solve the optimal consumption bundle as functions of , , and . e. Derive and draw the individual demand curve for each good. f. Illustrate the substitution and income effect for each good caused b y an increase in own price . 2. Consider a pure exchange economy between consumers 1 and 2 with the above two goods . a. Draw the Edgeworth box, and specify each consumer’s endowment of each good. b. Show whether the endowment point is Pareto efficient or not. If not, show the area where there can be mutually beneficial trade with respect to the endowment point . c. Derive and draw the contract curve in the Edgeworth box . d. Suppose the economy is in a competitive equilibrium , solve the equilibrium consumption bundles as functions of the price ratio and total endowments . e. Characterize the competitive equilibrium starting from the endowment point . Be clear about the equilibrium consumptions, the price ratios, and the consumers’ utility levels. Part II . Producer Theory and General Equilibrium (60 points) I. Model 1. Specify an output . For example: smar t phone . 2. Specify the demand functions for two different groups of consumers . For example: = 100 − , = 50 − 2. Also specify the number of consumers in each group. 3. Specify the production function for the output. For example: (,)= 0.250.25, 4. Specify the fixed cost to produce the output for both short run and long run. Explain the sources of the fixed costs if any. 5. Specify the short run supply of each input. For example: = 100 , = 10 ≤ 10 Explain why you assume the short run supply functions as they are. 6. Specify the long run supply of each input. For example: = 100 , = 10 . Explain why you assume the long run supply functions as they are. II. Analysis 1. Suppose that all markets are competitive with one representative firm in the output market . a.
