Lecture iv

  1. 1. CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR <ul><li>Consumer is a king -- buying power, preferences & price signals </li></ul><ul><li>Preference & choice </li></ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul><ul><li>To derive maximum utility </li></ul><ul><li>To pay lowest possible price </li></ul>
  2. 2. UTILITY ANALYSIS <ul><li>Utility – capacity of commodity to satisfy human want </li></ul><ul><li>Cardinal approach -- measurability of utility </li></ul><ul><li>Ordinal approach – Ranking of utility </li></ul>
  3. 3. UTILITY ANALYSIS 4 15 A4 3 18 A3 1 22 A2 2 20 A1 Ordinal Cardinal Good
  4. 4. RELATION BETWEEN TOTAL & MARGINAL UTILITY <ul><li>Marginal utility is addition to total utility </li></ul><ul><li>Total utility increases with every addition at diminishing rate </li></ul><ul><li>Marginal utility diminishes with every additional unit consumed </li></ul><ul><li>When total utility is maximum Marginal utility is zero </li></ul><ul><li>Total utility diminishes when Marginal utility is less than zero </li></ul>
  5. 5. THE LAW OF DIMINISHING MARGINAL UTILITY <ul><li>Dr. Marshall states “ the additional benefit which a person derives from a given increase of his stock of a thing diminishes with every increase in the stock that he already has” </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>“ceteris paribus marginal utility from every successive unit consumed goes on declining” </li></ul><ul><li>Homogeneous units </li></ul><ul><li>Time period of consumption </li></ul><ul><li>Consumption up to the point where MU=PRICE </li></ul>
  7. 7. ASSUMPTIONS OF THE LAW OF DMU <ul><li>Cardinal measurement of utility </li></ul><ul><li>Consumer is rational </li></ul><ul><li>Limited income </li></ul><ul><li>Constant prices </li></ul><ul><li>MUM is constant </li></ul>
  8. 8. THE LAW OF EQUI-MARGINAL UTILITY <ul><li>The consumer will distribute his given amount of money on different goods in such a way that the marginal utility of last rupee spent on each good is made equal </li></ul><ul><li>Ratios of MU to P for all goods are equal </li></ul>
  9. 9. CONSUMER’S EQUILIBRIUM <ul><li>Maximum satisfaction by allocating income over different goods in such a way that MU of all goods will be in proportion to their respective prices </li></ul><ul><li>MU of exp. or MU last rupee spent on each good will be made equal </li></ul><ul><li>MUa/Pa= MUb/Pb=MUc/Pc = ----MUn/Pn </li></ul>
  10. 10. DIMINISHING MU & THE LAW OF DEMAND <ul><li>Demand curve slopes downward as MU declines with every additional unit consumed </li></ul><ul><li>Consumer demands the good till </li></ul><ul><li>MU = price </li></ul><ul><li>So lower quantity is demanded at high price & vice versa </li></ul>

  13. 13. INDIFFERENCE CURVE (IC) ANALYSIS <ul><li>Scale of preference the base of IC technique </li></ul><ul><li>Based of Ordinal measurement of utility </li></ul><ul><li>Ranking of goods as per satisfaction derived </li></ul><ul><li>Two goods consumed </li></ul><ul><li>Independent of Prices & income </li></ul>
  14. 14. ASSUMPTIONS OF IC ANALYSIS <ul><li>Rational consumer </li></ul><ul><li>two goods </li></ul><ul><li>Income, taste, habits, & prices of goods remain same </li></ul><ul><li>Comparison and ranking of alternative commodities in order of preference </li></ul><ul><li>Transitivity </li></ul><ul><li>Continuity </li></ul>
  15. 15. IC SCHEDULE <ul><li>List of combinations of two goods X&Y giving same utility </li></ul>4 5 E 5 4 D 7 3 C 10 2 B 14 1 A Com. Y Com. X Combinations
  16. 16. Techniques of (IC) ANALYSIS <ul><li>Indifference curve </li></ul><ul><li>A graphical representation of I schedule </li></ul><ul><li>It is a locus of various combinations of goods giving EQUAL satisfaction </li></ul><ul><li>Indifference map </li></ul><ul><li>It is a family/set of ICs </li></ul>

  20. 20. MARGINAL RATE OF SUBSTITUTION <ul><li>MRS diminishes for normal goods </li></ul><ul><li>To obtain one more unit of X less & less of Y would be given up </li></ul><ul><li>So IC takes negative shape </li></ul>
