The Perils Of Indifference Logos
"The Perils of Indifference" Rhetorical Analysis In his moving speech, "The Perils of Indifference",
of 1999, Ellie Wiesel, a Jewish Holocaust survivor with firsthand experience of ethnic cleansing and
oppression, strongly encourages his widely varied audience from around the world to promote
change and ensure that they won't make the same mistakes their ancestors had made 45 years earlier
during World War II. Wiesel's purpose is to convince the current and upcoming generations to
protect their humanity and morality in order to prevent human suffering. He is attempting to achieve
this goal by gaining his credibility and appealing to the audience's sympathy, exchanging the use of
concession and refutation, and referring to the suffering of ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net
...
He claims that the "young Jewish boy...has accompanied the old man [he has] become throughout
these years of quest and struggle. And together [they] walk towards the new millennium, carried by
profound fear and extraordinary hope." He learned at a very young age what real fear and pain felt
like. Wiesel's memories of war as a child have lived and grown along with him. His older, wiser self,
joined with his younger, wounded self, is now hoping to start the new era with a new approach: to
protect ourselves and our future from indifference. Because Wiesel was so young during these
traumatic times, he understands what it is like to be a victim of ethnic cleansing and persecution. He
reminds the audience of "the children" whose "fate is always the most tragic, inevitably. When
adults wage war, children perish." Children do not have the strength, knowledge, or authority to
protect themselves from such strong forces. They have to go along with whatever the adults decide
is right. Wiesel connects his own troubled childhood with the potentially troubled childhood of the
current and future generations in order to help portray to the audience that the indifference of
humanity has a negative impact on children too. He can speak from a child's perspective because he
has the experience and knowledge to back it up. He knows how tragic and dangerous it is to be a

The Perils Of Indifference
Moral Responsibility Many people believe there is not a dividing line between ignorance and
indifference, but they are more similar/connected to each other than people think and are the
opposite of moral responsibility. In both the story "Night" and Elie Wiesel's "The Perils of
Indifference" the Americans(President) and the Germans both showed indifference toward the Jew
during the Holocaust and World War II, which proves people are willing to sacrifice others to keep
themselves safe and not get involved with anything that has nothing to do with them. Everyone on
the Earth has a moral obligation to right the wrongs in our world to the extent where indifference
can be justified. People may argue that being indifferent or ignorant on what is going on around
them will keep them safe, because they do not feel responsible for helping others, mainly because
they think they will be right in harm's way. No Matter how many good people there are in the world
or if the world is all good, there will always be a at least one bad/negative person to go against the
good people. By people showing some moral obligations in the world, the Earth would be ... Show

Violence will occur occasionally due to the fact that people will try to help others and would end
many things (racism, human assault, etc.). Meaning the world would be safer and create a better
society for the future inhabitants of the Earth. Parents would have to worry less about kids and
people would not have to worry about wars or genocide happening in other parts of the world due to
people's indifferent attitudes toward other races. People/races would go through less suffering for
the reason being everyone feels they should help others even if they do not know them. Which
means if a random girl/boy is drowning, a person walking by on the sidewalk will rush over
immediately to save the child they do not

Summary Of The Perils Of Indifference
The Perils of Indifference speech by Elie Wiesel is a moving speech that makes the reader question
how they react to suffering and indifference. It will make the reader think about whether he or she is
indifferent to something. When the speaker said it is, "Easier to look away from victims... much
easier to avoid", this is true to today's society ("Perils of Indifference," 1999). In today's society,
people are only looking out for themselves and if something happened to another person, they would
rather look away and ignore it then do something about it. This is not the way that it should be.
People should be helping out others and speaking up for the people that do not have a voice. The
section of the speech that was provided explains what the speaker believes about indifference.
Indifference is knowing what is going on but doing nothing about it ("Indifference," n.d). To
understand the point of the speech it is important the reader knows what indifference means.
Unfortunately, in today's society most people are indifferent about what is happening in other parts
of the world. For example, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, some people in the United States do not
care what the military service is doing over there as long as ... Show more content on

Sit down and watch the news for even just fifteen minutes, the viewer would at least see one thing
that is happening somewhere else. By the viewer turning the channel or tuning it out shows that they
are aware, something is going on but chose to ignore it. It is confusing to me how some people can
just ignore what is going on in the world. The speaker stated that people that are indifferent in their
life makes them inhuman ("Perils of Indifference," 1999). I would have to agree with the speaker.
Every human should care about what is happening to the human race even if they live half way
across the

The Perils Of Indifference Logos

  • 1. The Perils Of Indifference Logos "The Perils of Indifference" Rhetorical Analysis In his moving speech, "The Perils of Indifference", of 1999, Ellie Wiesel, a Jewish Holocaust survivor with firsthand experience of ethnic cleansing and oppression, strongly encourages his widely varied audience from around the world to promote change and ensure that they won't make the same mistakes their ancestors had made 45 years earlier during World War II.

Wiesel's memories of war as a child have lived and grown along with him. His older, wiser self, joined with his younger, wounded self, is now hoping to start the new era with a new approach: to protect ourselves and our future from indifference. Because Wiesel was so young during these traumatic times, he understands what it is like to be a victim of ethnic cleansing and persecution. He reminds the audience of "the children" whose "fate is always the most tragic, inevitably. When adults wage war, children perish." Children do not have the strength, knowledge, or authority to protect themselves from such strong forces. They have to go along with whatever the adults decide is right. Wiesel connects his own troubled childhood with the potentially troubled childhood of the current and future generations in order to help portray to the audience that the indifference of humanity has a negative impact on children too.

The Perils Of Indifference Moral Responsibility Many people believe there is not a dividing line between ignorance and indifference, but they are more similar/connected to each other than people think and are the opposite of moral responsibility. In both the story "Night" and Elie Wiesel's "The Perils of Indifference" the Americans(President) and the Germans both showed indifference toward the Jew during the Holocaust and World War II, which proves people are willing to sacrifice others to keep themselves safe and not get involved with anything that has nothing to do with them. Everyone on the Earth has a moral obligation to right the wrongs in our world to the extent where indifference can be justified. People may argue that being indifferent or ignorant on what is going on around them will keep them safe, because they do not feel responsible for helping others, mainly because they think they will be right in harm's way.

  • 5. Summary Of The Perils Of Indifference The Perils of Indifference speech by Elie Wiesel is a moving speech that makes the reader question how they react to suffering and indifference. It will make the reader think about whether he or she is indifferent to something. When the speaker said it is, "Easier to look away from victims... much easier to avoid", this is true to today's society ("Perils of Indifference," 1999). In today's society, people are only looking out for themselves and if something happened to another person, they would rather look away and ignore it then do something about it. This is not the way that it should be. People should be helping out others and speaking up for the people that do not have a voice. The section of the speech that was provided explains what the speaker believes about indifference. Indifference is knowing what is going on but doing nothing about it ("Indifference," n.d). To understand the point of the speech it is important the reader knows what indifference means.

There is at least two sides to every story, or in this case two sides to every subject. Economists' have different views on the world, and they cannot agree on a single viewpoint. There is the popular, mainstream economists, known as the neoclassical economist and there are the heterodox economists' which covers the nonmainstream views. Although the mainstream economics is the one taught in school, its assumptions are there to achieve a certain outcome. The heterodox economist's assumptions are based on the fact to eliminate extraneous factors. I believe that heterodox economics will start to be considered more in the world of academics and may take the place of the current mainstream economics. The theories of consumption have different viewpoints. Neoclassical consumer theory is the explanation of how consumers allocate incomes to the purchase of different goods and services. In other words, it is how individuals make choices given their income and the price of goods and services. This is how the neoclassical economist is able to understand tastes and how income influences the demand curve.

  • 11. Elie Wiesel Contribution The 20th century was a time of brutal wars and eradication of joy. On April 12, 1999, Elie Wiesel stepped up to the podium, reflecting the violent times as they were months before entering a new century. Wiesel knew very well that the uncountable tragedies had to change, and each individual must exercise his or her own contributions in the face of justice and humanity. His devastating experiences and tragic realizations produced a voice that carried around the world, revealing the fundamental structure of humanity. Elie Wiesel was a Jewish American born in Romania. His principles were influenced by being raised in a heavily religious and liberal family. In the 1940s, his own country forced his family to flee to the ghettos, and not long after, Wiesel, "a young Jewish boy from a small town," was captured by Nazis, waking up to the perilous realization of "eternal infamy" (Wiesel). In April 1945, after enduring through starvation and punishment, he was finally liberated. As he recovered, Wiesel studied in France as a journalist for Israeli and French publications. His colleague inspired him to publish his experience during the Holocaust which became known as the world–famous Night. Wiesel continued to write several books in New York. Along with his publications, he advocated equality, taught Judaism, and established a foundation to combat indifference (Biography.com).

  • 13. Summary Of Out Out By Robert Frost The poem "Out Out" portrays a story of describes a farm accident that unexpectedly and irrationally costs a young boy his life. The narrator of the poem sets the scene, seemingly from an outsider's perspective, reporting the incident with objectivity and restraint. Yet, as the narrative advances, underlying emotions and tensions surface as the persona builds to the poem's conclusion: the seemingly senseless, abrupt ending of the boy's life, followed by his family's subsequent return to their daily routines. The poem is told directly to the audience through a third–person narrative, presumably told by the author or some bystander. The speaker is trustworthy as there is so much detail and imagery employed, it is hard to believe that the account was false. In addition, there would be no plausible reason for the speaker to diverge from the truth when speaking about the morbid story of a young boy. Frost possesses a very indifferent tone throughout the poem. The poet does not empathize or mourn for the boy when he cuts his hand. He presents the action as commonplace. It is described with a tone of indifference as a "meeting" rather than a maiming and the boy is said to be "old enough" though a "child at heart" [lines 18, 23–24]. At a glance, the poem looks quite long possessing 34 lines, but it is not since it is primarily composed of relatively short lines consisting of 7–10 words in each line.

Summary Of The Perils Of Indifference Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, in his speech, "The Perils of Indifference," argues that indifference can destroy mankind as it can obliterate a person's humanity. He supports his claim by first expressing his gratitude for his audience for their fight against insouciance to gain their trust, then uses logical reasoning to convey that the United States has committed acts of indifference to showcase the severity of the situation, and evokes emotion by proclaiming how children endure indifference. Wiesel's purpose is to expose the harsh reality that apathy imposes on its victims to bring awareness of the issue in hope that the audience acts upon it. He adopts an empathetic tone for government officials and politicians who influence society. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Wiesel proclaims that "We see their faces, their eyes. Do we hear their pleas? Do we feel their pain, their agony? Every minute one of them dies of disease, violence, famine." Wiesel specifically utilities children as examples of victims of indifference as it is an easy way to induce the audience to gain sympathy for the victims who endure apathy, and ultimately will want to create change. Children are seen as helpless beings due to the fact that they depend a considerable amount on others. Due to this reality, children are usually more vulnerable to impassivity as they become much more impotent as they receive little or no aid in their fight against indifference. This method is used in many subject matters such as the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) who provides humanitarian assistance to children in developing countries. The UNICEF puts out many commercials to help hungry children in developing countries; however, children aren't the only ones who are hungry. There are many adults and some elderly who face starvation as well, but using footage of starving children provokes more emotion from consumers in first–world countries who are the ones who donate money and food to those children out of sympathy for them as children are universally known to be dependent on others and are seen as helpless beings. Wiesel utilizes the same strategy in his speech. He could use other examples of victims of apathy, but ultimately employs children as an examples for the purpose of inducing emotion out of his audience. Wiesel also inputs this emotional appeal at the end of his speech as a final attempt to bring awareness to his audience about the severity of insouciance to prompt them to create change. It is as if it is a final call to action as he ends the speech "carried by profound fear and extraordinary hope." This fear is evoked and supported by ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Therefore, they need to learn that, "Because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never tend to know for whom the bell tolls," (source A), if they take the lesson of showing they care about everyone and what they do, they will see their ways of indifference. The United States also shows indifference in intolerance by ignoring it.

If the opportunity cost is constant as production of different goods is changing, then a linear PPF is produced. Concave (towards origin) Suppose there is diseconomies of scale or decreasing returns to scale. Under full utilization of resources, the production possibility frontier is concave towards the origin. This shape is basically due to the differences in optimal factor intensities between industries. If a country faces increasing opportunity costs or marginal rate of transformation (MRT) in producing more units of a commodity, then this is shown by a PPF that is concave.

Additionally, World War II is often viewed as one of the darkest times in American and World History; thus, no one would question someone who lived through the gloomiest time of that war, the Holocaust. The humble Wiesel further establishes his ethos by showing his appreciation to the President and others: "And now, I stand before you, Mr. President – Commander–in–Chief of the army that freed me, and tens of thousands of others – and I am filled with a profound and abiding gratitude to the American people." This helps to reinforce Wiesel's already strong ethos, because he speaks directly to the audience and tells them how much he admires them.

It is something that most people experience at some point or another through fictional novels or a biography, or a speech. The question is how do they do it and why. Through their use of stories and word choice authors are able to heighten emotional intensity in order to manipulate the reader into feeling certain emotions. In a paper or speech where authors are trying to persuade, authors create these emotions because their audience is more likely to accept their argument and want to bring change if they are emotionally invested in something. One particular author that is very good at this is Elie Wiesel. In his speech, "Perlis of Indifference," he describes his experience during the holocaust. He is able to evoke emotions of remorse, and guilt from the audience by telling his story with vivid details, and sharing his definition of indifference with the audience. He does this so we understand that indifference is a bad thing, and it is something that we should try to end. When people think about being indifferent to something they would think of it as something that they do not care about, something that is harmless.

Suppose the firm were to give anyone buying product A a coupon entitling the holder to a certain amount (say $10) off the price of product B. Would the firm benefit from such a promotion scheme? Give an intuitive explanation for your answer. The case informs us that the consumers will buy both the products and that the willingness–to–pay for each of the product is independent across the products but the maximum a consumer will pay for both the products combined is $100. Since a discount coupon is being given, this implies that the products are not bundled. As per our analysis in Qs.#2, we found that the maximum profit that can be earned by selling the products separately is 50000 and the consumer equilibrium occurs at a price of $50 for each of the product. So considering this, if we increase the price of B to $60 and give a $10 discount coupon, the effective price of B comes to $50. Below figure 3.1 depicts the scenario where a discount coupon of $10 is provided. In this instance, a gift of $10, would result in an increase of the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The only possession left: family, and that is taken as well, while the world simply sits back and watches. This is exactly what happened to Elie at just 11 years old. Elie Wiesel is an American Romanian–Born Jewish writer, professor and holocaust survivor. His speech given on April 12, 1999 as part of the millennium lecture series called "The Perils of Indifference" nearly 50 years after being liberated from a concentration camp explains this very issue of indifference. In his speech Elie reflects not only on how indifference affects our past, but how it threatens our future. In his speech, ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

But this time, the world was not silent. This time, we do respond. This time, we intervene."(Wiesel). Wiesel remembers the good following the bad, "The defeat of Nazism" those who killed 11 million people and "The collapse of communism" what caused the holocaust to continue. The horrible things that happened good came out, not enough to make up but good things. Wiesel also states that this time (in Kosovo) when the people were being tortured similarly to the holocaust and instead of doing nothing and letting people die like before, they did something.

Understanding consumer behavior is the first step in making profitable pricing, advertising, product design and production decisions. In order to make marketing decisions, managers need to know how consumers choose the bundle of goods and services they actually purchase from all possible bundles that they could purchase. Managers should be aware of the consumer–choice process when estimating the demand for the firms' products, forecasting future demand, and making advertising decisions.

It measures the number of units of Y that must be given up per unit of X added so as to maintain a constant level of utility. MRS = ΔY/ΔX Figure 1. A typical indifference curve The consumer is indifferent between combinations A (4food and 45clothing) and B (6food and 30 clothing). Thus the rate at which the consumer is willing to substitute is MRS = ΔY/ΔX = 45 – 30 / 4 – 6 = – 7.5 The MRS is 7.5, meaning that the consumer is willing to give up 7.5 units of clothing for each unit of food added. 4. Indifference curves are the further from the origin, the greater level of utility associated with the curve. Combinations of goods on higher indifference curves are preferred to combinations on lower curves. 5. Indifference curves are everywhere dense. Theoretically, any number of such indifference curves could be generated by slicing the utility surface at different altitudes so that the floor of the surface might appear "dense" with concentric indifference curves. The collection of representative indifference curves may be referred to as an indifference curve map.

  • 53. Leisure And Leisure Time Vs. Leisure Time We do not only gain utility from our consumption. We also gain utility from leisure. Leisure time is the time you spend outside of work. In the similar way of maximizing utility from our purchases, we decide the number of hours of work that will yield us the highest utility, in other words, that makes us the happiest. People make money by giving up some leisure time. The more leisure hours you sacrifice to go to work, the more income you earn. Leisure time or activities are contrasted, implicitly or directly, with worktime or productive activities. (Moore and Hedges, 1971) Leisure time could be used for vacation, resting, playing golf or other activities that we enjoy doing. Thus, economists see leisure as a normal good that provides us with satisfaction. On the other hand, income generates purchasing power so we can purchase goods and services we desire. In other words, income gives us satisfaction in an indirect way. As both income and leisure yield utility, everyone has their own indifference curve between income and leisure, depending on personal preferences. An indifference curve is constituted by a set of combinations of income and leisure hours that yield the same level of utility. Indifference curves are downward sloping and convex to the origin. They are parallel to each other– they do not intersect. The distance between an indifference curve and the origin indicates the utility level of the individual, as it gets longer, the satisfaction of the individual becomes ...

  • 55. The Consumption Of Two Goods consumption of two goods In economics a consumer is described as a rational individual who wishes to maximise their utility by making rational choices. These choices appear when a consumer is exposed to two goods, where a given amount of one good substitutes the use of another one. To calculate how a consumer can achieve the optimal allocation of the two goods, an indifference curve is used and the analysis of an indifference curve can be combined with the budget constraint. For the consumer, some combinations are better than others for maximising utility, and the best combination is the optimal combination. Consumers have preferences about the goods they consume. Therefore, when faced with a choice of goods, the consumer must decide ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Consumers wish to have a higher number of goods than less. If the consumer added another book to his bundle, he would have to sacrifice some water, in order to hold utility constant. One can calculate how many glasses of water the consumer is willing to sacrifice for another book without changing his total utility through the marginal rate of substitution. According to (BEGG et al., Economics, 11th edition, McGraw–Hill Education, 2014 ), the marginal rate of substitution between two goods measures the quantity of a good the consumer must sacrifice to increase the quantity of the other good by one unit without changing total utility. For example, if the consumer has 10 books and no water and he reads 9 of these books, he won't enjoy the last one as much. Furthermore, by drinking no water the consumer will be very dehydrated and won't enjoy reading at all, and so the utility of this particular bundle would be extremely low. On the flip side, if the consumer drank a large amount of water and read few books. As a result, he would be reluctant to sacrifice his books for even more water. By and large, a consumer's preferences exhibit the diminishing marginal rate of substitution, which means that when a consumer owns lot of one good, they will give up a comparatively large amount of it to get another good of which they have little.

  • 57. Summary Of The Perils Of Indifference The Perils of Indifference speech by Elie Wiesel is a moving speech that makes the reader question how they react to suffering and indifference. It will make the reader think about whether he or she is indifferent to something. When the speaker said it is, "Easier to look away from victims... much easier to avoid", this is true to today's society ("Perils of Indifference," 1999). In today's society, people are only looking out for themselves and if something happened to another person, they would rather look away and ignore it then do something about it. This is not the way that it should be. People should be helping out others and speaking up for the people that do not have a voice. The section of the speech that was provided explains what the speaker believes about indifference. Indifference is knowing what is going on but doing nothing about it ("Indifference," n.d). To understand the point of the speech it is important the reader knows what indifference means.

  • 59. Lack Of Marginal Utility Theory Suppliers might have to do a market research in order to forecast the consumer behaviour. To do this efficiently, firms might use marginal utility theory, namely principle of diminishing marginal utility together with indifference analysis. Utility is the satisfaction that people earn from the consumption of a certain quantity of a product (Mankiw and Taylor, 2014). Marginal utility is the additional satisfaction that customer gains from consuming one extra unit within a given period of time. However, the more of a product a person consumes, the less additional utility they are able to gain from that extra unit. Understanding this situation, economists come up with indifference analysis. Indifference analysis shows how consumer chooses the combination between two goods but still obtains the same satisfaction and indifference curve is the graph which illustrates that combination. It means, at any points on indifference curve, the consumer is indifferent about how to combine the two goods. Diagrammatically, if a person chooses 6 units of good Y with 2 units of good X, his utility will not be different from choosing 4 units of Y with 3 units of X, as long as those points are still on the curve. Most indifference curves have a convex shape and the reason is this. The lower units of good Y, the bigger quantity of good X in order to satisfy the loss of good Y. Nevertheless, the amount of giving up one of these two good cannot be the same. In other words, if the one of the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Can one possibly view indifference as a virtue? Is it necessary at times to practice to simply keep one's sanity, live normally and enjoy a fine meal and a glass of wine as the world around us experiences harrowing upheavals?" (444). b) "Indifference can be tempting– more than that, seductive..."

"Indifference is not a response" (444).

In this 1999 speech, Elie Wiesel tells the story of his involvement as a prisoner in World War II. When he was freed from the war, he reported that it was if he had died. He was no longer able to enjoy the things he liked before the war, and he lived in a constant state of worry that disasters such as the Holocaust would occur again (Wiesel, 1999). Wiesel, therefore, urges the audience to avoid indifference because this is the trait that leads people to be able to accept events like the Holocaust. He claims that when people believe the world's events are not related to them, it is easier for them to rationalize their occurrence. Thus, Wiesel uses his emotion to demonstrate the problems of indifference and urges the audience to avoid experiencing this trait. Through their speeches, both Susan B. Anthony and Elie Wiesel encourage equality in their nations. Anthony accomplishes this by encouraging the audience that the right for women to vote will support the achievement of equality, while Wiesel does this by asking people to pay attention to the politics and the social revolutions of the era, noting that these events have the potential to impact each.

  • 71. The Perils Of Indifference Summary What is more hurtful than words and actions? Indifference is the lack of interest, concern, or sympathy. In the "The Perils of Indifference,", the author, Elie Wiesel, claims that indifference is more dangerous than violence. He uses strong word choice, emotional appeal, anecdotes, logical appeal, and ethical appeal to support his claim and convince his listeners that indifference is harmful in many ways. First, the author supports his claim that indifference is more harmful by using emotional appeal through powerful imagery. The author shows his claim in the story by using laconic phrases: "They feared nothing. They felt nothing. They were dead and did not know it." (para. 6). This recondite quote shows that there is a lack of sense in dying people, which makes the readers feel sorrowful. Wiesel uses this to elucidate the claim that indifference is harmful because it shows that the lack of interest could lead to death and sorrow of many people. In short, Wiesel uses the emotional appeal in imagery to show that indifference is dangerous. Next, Wiesel uses word choice to support his claim that indifference is destructive and to prove that people need to express thankfulness. In the speech, he says, "'Gratitude' is a word that I cherish." (para. 2). He uses this to express thankfulness and content to the first lady, Hillary Clinton. It also ...

Although these consequences were in effect, many groups of people would rise against them and provide food for the people living in the ghettos, publish underground newspapers that spoke out against the Nazis, and provide illegal radio broadcasts of the events occurring. With these efforts of resistance occurring, many individuals stood out while helping others such as Dr. Janusz Korczak; In particular, when his orphanage was having children taken away to concentration camps, he decided to go along with them instead of staying behind and leaving the children to fend for themselves.

The Cambridge Dictionary (2015) has defined child benefit as 'money received regularly by families from the government to help pay for costs of taking care of children'. In the United Kingdom, the government has changed the child benefits policy in 2013. Child benefits are no longer available to every household. Individuals who earn above £50,000 a year will lose some of their benefit, and entirely withdrawn for individuals earning beyond £60,000 each year. This rule leads to a considerable effect to the people in the UK. It has diminished the entitlement of approximately 1.2 million households (BBC, 2015). In this essay, I will describe this policy as well as the labour supply model, then by using the standard labour supply model, investigate how this shift in child benefits will influence labour supply decisions for a single mother with two children who is capable of finding work at £30 per hour.

The assumption that individuals are capable of ranking their preferences implies that indifference curves exist. The assumption of non–satiation assures that the curves will have a negative slope. This is easily shown by considering a curve with positive slope, such as the curve passing through point S in Figure – 2. Pick any point on the curve, such as R. Note that point S denotes a bundle with more of both goods X and Y than point R. But because of the non–satiation assumption, having more of both goods implies that S is preferred to R. Thus, the two points cannot be on the same indifference curve. Hence, indifference curves must be downward sloping. Transitivity and non– satiation guarantee that two indifference curves will not intersect. This can also be seen from Figure – 2, which shows two indifference curves crossing at point J. Consider points K and L. The bundle denoted by K has more of both goods than L and hence must be preferred to L. Because J and L are on the same indifference curve, transitivity requires that K be preferred to J. But this is not true; J and K are on the same indifference curve. Thus the assumption of transitivity has been violated because preferences are not consistent. The assumption of transitivity is always violated when indifference curves intersect.
