These welfare effects in related markets are measured as changes in tax revenue because the taxes are the difference between marginal benefits and costs in each market. As taxed activities expand the government collects the net consumption gain as tax revenue. 28) where g is a path that determines the order in which the taxes are introduced. 26. Each shaded rectangle represents the marginal deadweight loss from small increases in the tax, and are equal to t1 (∂◯1/ ∂q1). Tax t2 is then introduced in small increments in the presence of tax t1.

But it is straightforward to show that it is a monotonic transformation of the . linearly homogeneous utility function 19. From Roy's Identity we have: ∂V/qi = −λxi. 10) is obtained by using Young's Theorem, where: ∂2/V/∂qi ∂I = ∂V/∂I∂qi = ∂λ/∂qi, and Roy's Identity. 20. 21. There is good intuition for the marginal utility of income being homogeneous of degree -1. The real value of each dollar of income will be halved when all prices and money income are doubled. In other words, the consumer will have to spend twice as many dollars to buy the same real bundle of goods (at unchanged relative prices).

Their main advantage, however, is that they can be estimated empirically using observed price–quantity data. 2) 14 where I is money income and q the vector of consumer prices. At an interior solution the marginal utility for each good i is equated to its marginal cost, with ∂u/∂xi = λ qi, where λ is the Lagrange multiplier on the budget constraint. 3) 18 MEASURING WELFARE CHANGESBRIEF OVERVIEW Since λ is the marginal utility of income, du/λ is a dollar measure of the change in utility. It is the sum of the value of the changes in consumption demand as areas underneath ordinary demand schedules.
