Which of the following statements is true based on what we know about the properties of utility?

Alexandra receives 20 utility from drinking one soda and 25 utility from eating a pizza. Therefore, Alexandra enjoys pizza more than sodas.

What will happen if a good that is normal has a decrease in price which causes a substitution effect?

The consumer will continue to purchase more of the lower priced good until his/her budget is exhausted.

8. If over the last twenty years consumer incomes declined by 20% and consumption of public transport increased by 10%, which of these statements must be true?

Read over the following scenarios. Which one best represents how a behavioral economist might view a situation?

Why do most demand curves have a negative slope?

Because consumers substitute higher quality goods for lower quality goods because of the substitution effect.

11. What is involved in the step-by-step process of finding the choice with the maximum utility?

Behavioral economist use something called a nudge to boost rational economic behavior. Which of these is an example of that type of nudge?

What economic concept is defined as the value, or satisfaction, that people derive from the goods and services they consume and the activities they pursue?
