Experimental tools in economics reply to conditions that aren't thoroughly dictated by means of authorized idea or remarkable difficulties. whereas the sphere of economics makes sharp differences and produces distinct conception, the paintings of experimental economics occasionally look blurred and will produce effects that adjust from powerful aid to little or partial help of the suitable idea.

The properties of the output set can be summarised as follows. , inaction is possible); (ii) non-zero output levels cannot be produced from zero levels of inputs; (iii) P(x) satisfies strong disposabihty of outputs: if q G P(X) and q* < q then q* e P(x);^ (iv) P(x) satisfies strong disposabihty of inputs: if q can be produced from x, then q can be produced from any x* > x;^ (v) P(x) is closed; (vi) P(x) is bounded; and (vii) P(x) is convex. The assumption of closedness is essentially a mathematical requirement"^, but the bounded nature of P(x) implies that we cannot produce unlimited levels of outputs with a given set of inputs.

5. Recall that the STC function was obtained by setting (wi, Wj, X2) = (150, 1 100). 5 when prices are Wi = 150 and W2 = 1. 2 we used a single-output production function to define several economic quantities of interest, including a measure of returns to scale. Measures of returns to scale are also available in the multiple-output case, and they can be defined in terms of the cost function. For example, a measure of overall scale economies is ^ahic(w,q) s. 57) The firm will exhibit increasing, constant or decreasing returns to scale as £^ is greater than, equal to, or less than one.

3 A Digression on Production Possibility Curves and Revenue Maximisation A multi-output production technology can be very difficult to conceptualise or to visualise. We can attempt to provide some understanding by using a simple oneinput, two-output example. 4) This one-input, two-output case can be used to illustrate the idea of a production possibility curve (PPC), which is the output counterpart of the isoquant. The isoquant represents the various combinations of inputs that could be used to produce a given output level.
