Question

Currently, a consumer is buying both sorbet and gelato each week. His MRSGS [marginal rate of substitution of gelato (G) for sorbet (S)] equals 0.75. The price of gelato is €1 per scoop, and the price of sorbet is €1.25 per scoop.

• ​Explain whether the consumer should buy more sorbet or more gelato, given that he is not currently optimizing his budget.
The MRSGS is the rate at which the consumer is willing to give up sorbet to gain a small additional amount of gelato, which is 0.75 scoops of sorbet to gain one scoop of gelato. The price ratio, PG/PS (0.8), is the rate at which he must give up sorbet to gain an additional small amount of gelato. In this case, the consumer would be better off spending a little less on gelato and a little more on sorbet.

Consumer Equilibrium Currently, a consumer is buying both sorbet and gelato each week. His MRS GS [marginal rate of substitution of gelato (G) for sorbet (S)] equals 0.75. The price of gelato is €1 per scoop, and the price of sorbet is €1.25 per scoop. Determine whether the consumer is currently optimizing his budget over these two desserts. Justify your answer. ​Explain whether the consumer should buy more sorbet or more gelato, given that he is not currently optimizing his budget. Solution to 1: In this example, the condition for consumer equilibrium is MRS GS = P G /P S . Because P G /P S = 0.8 and MRS GS = 0.75, the consumer is clearly not

EXAMPLE 5 <span>Consumer Equilibrium Currently, a consumer is buying both sorbet and gelato each week. His MRS GS [marginal rate of substitution of gelato (G) for sorbet (S)] equals 0.75. The price of gelato is €1 per scoop, and the price of sorbet is €1.25 per scoop. Determine whether the consumer is currently optimizing his budget over these two desserts. Justify your answer. Explain whether the consumer should buy more sorbet or more gelato, given that he is not currently optimizing his budget. Solution to 1: In this example, the condition for consumer equilibrium is MRS GS = P G /P S . Because P G /P S = 0.8 and MRS GS = 0.75, the consumer is clearly not allocating his budget in a way that maximizes his utility, subject to his budget constraint. Solution to 2: The MRS GS is the rate at which the consumer is willing to give up sorbet to gain a small additional amount of gelato, which is 0.75 scoops of sorbet to gain one scoop of gelato. The price ratio, P G /P S (0.8), is the rate at which he must give up sorbet to gain an additional small amount of gelato. In this case, the consumer would be better off spending a little less on gelato and a little more on sorbet. 5.2.

 roup 1 has clearly misunderstood the German phrase Partei ergreifen as der Partei dienen. In a sentence that contained the words Staat and Partei and re ferred to events in the communist GDR, these American students had auto matically inferred that Partei had to do with the communist party and that Anton was refusing to serve in the Party. They believed that, like Plenzdorf 7s Edgar, Brussig's Anton was revolting against communism. How can I make them understand, the instructor asked, that many young people of the time in the GDR were not revolting against socialism, indeed, did not wish to do away with socialism, only to reform it from the inside? How can I make them ac cept for a moment that one might even wish to be communist or a better com munist

 Let us suppose that a certain lexical unit has been assigned to the student, introduced, but then for some reason is dropped from the active acquisi- tion process and re-introduced at a later time. In such a case, the time and effort spent by the student between the initial introduction and the tem- porary removal from the acquisition process would be, effectively, wasted. After the re-introduction, the student would need to start the learning pro- cess all over.
