Abstract

The basic traditional structure underlying any choice problem in economics can be summarised as follows:
$$Max\;\;Z=Z(x_{1},x_{2})\;\;subject\;to\;T(x_{1},x_{2})=k$$
(1)
where (x 1, x 2) represents elections for the decision-maker (e.g. commodity-mix in a consumer’s choice problem, vector of outputs in a joint production problem, composition of a portfolio of securities, etc.); Z (x 1, x 2 ) is the utility function for the decision-maker, and T (x 1,x 2 ) = k the opportunity set, trade-off set or feasible frontier (budgetary boundary in consumer theory, transformation curve in joint production theory, efficient frontier in portfolio analysis, etc.).
