Now that income is cheaper, it makes sense to purchase more of it. This purchase is made by working more hours and taking less leisure. The classic article is Lionel Robbins, “On the Elasticity of Demand for Income in Terms of Effort,” Economica, June 1930, pp. 123–29. 1 Wage Changes and Hours of Work: Substitution and Income Effects (2) Impact on Hours of Work (3) (1) Size of Effects Substitution effect exceeds income effect. Income effect equals substitution effect. Income effect exceeds substitution effect.

Let’s start with point b, where we note that indifference curve I1 is steeper than the budget line, or more technically, MRS L,Y is greater than the wage rate. For example, the MRS L,Y might be 4 while the wage rate is $2. What does this mean? It indicates that an additional hour of ­leisure is worth $4 to this individual but that she will have to sacrifice only $2 of ­income to obtain that extra hour of leisure. Acquiring something worth $4 at the cost of something worth only $2 is clearly a beneficial exchange.

For a wage rate increase, the hours of work rise (the substitution effect). In this case, the individual wishes to work h′2 h2 more hours. 28 Chapter 2 The Theory of Individual Labor Supply Keep in mind that the individual does not actually “move” to a new optimal position in two distinct steps, but rather goes directly from u1 to u2. We have conceptually isolated the income and substitution effects to stress that there are two opposing ways in which a wage increase affects the worker: by increasing monetary income and by increasing the relative price of leisure.
