Consider an economy where, consumer's utility function is given as U(C,L)=C-(1/2)L2 . where C is consumption and L is labor. The production technology is Y=(1.6)L-(1/2)L2. The turnover cost per labor is (0.36)/(w/p)
(a) What happens to t as labor increases? Give a clear intuition
(b) prepare down the firm's maximization problem and solve it. Find real wage, labor.
(c) prepare down consumer maximization problem and solve it. Derive labor supply curve
(d) Find real wage, employment, output and unemployment in this economy.
(e) Illustrate the solution graphically using Labor Supply / Labor Demand and Production Function diagrams. Is money neutral in the "Flexible-Wages Monetary Model" ? Why or why not?
