In particular, O*, (W/P)*, 1T*, y*, and /* would all have been changed. As a second example of comparative-statics analysis, let us assume that, with -r held fixed, m"/P is increased and used solely to increase government demand for commodities. This disturbance has no direct effect on household behavior. 2, to the right. At any combination of Q and W/P, both the supply of commodities and the total of government and household demands for commodities will be increased. However, we have assumed that the level of provision of public services is sufficiently high that the marginal product with respect to ga is less than unity.

The time path for cd' is constant from date 0 to date fl, from date fl to date N', and from date N' to date N, but generally at three different levels. However, if consumption and employment are independent influences on utility, the effective consumption demand at date t is independent of the level of employment at date t, and the time path for cd' is constant from date 0 to date N.

Underlying this formulation of the maximiza­ tion problem was the assumption that the representative firm could sell all the output which it supplied and could buy all the labor which it demanded at the going wage-price vector. However, this assumption is appropriate only as long as the representative firm does not face either excess supply in the commodity market or excess demand in the labor market. In the present context, this assumption is inappropriate. 5 Given excess supply, voluntary exchange implies that actual sales y will equal the quantity demanded and thus will be less than ys.
