If the consumer could “choose her circumstances”, which one of the three budget lines do you think she would she choose (and why)? 3 On the same graph draw the following budget lines (i) 4x1+ x 2 12 (ii) x1+ 4x 2 12 Which one of the two represents greater scarcity from the consumer’s point of view?
