Budget-Constrained Maximization of “Cobb-Douglas with Linear Components” Utility Function

In what follows, we provide the demand analysis associated with budget-constrained linear utility maximization for each of several categories of goods, with the marginal rate of consumption expenditure-as a share of wealth- being a positive constant less than or equal to one. The marginal rate of consumption expenditure is endogenously determined, by a budget-constrained “Cobb-Douglas … Read more
