Step 1

The budget constraint of the individual can be written as follows:

Step 2

The equation policy is that the MRS is equal to which means that at the equation, the MRS equals wages equals is 100, C equals to 100l. The budget constraint of the economy can be expressed as follows:

Step 3

Thus, the value of ‘l’ c...
