 # What is CV and EV?

## What is CV and EV?

CV, or compensating variation, is the adjustment in income that returns the consumer to the original utility after an economic change has occurred. EV, or equivalent variation is the adjustment in income that changes the consumer’s utility equal to the level that would occur IF the event had happened.

## What is Hicksian approach?

The Hicksian Method: Hicks has separated the substitution effect and the income effect from the price effect through compensating variation in income by changing the relative price of a good while keeping the real income of the consumer constant. With the fall in the price of X, the consumer’s real income increases.

## How do you find the demand function?

Derive the demand function, which sets the price equal to the slope times the number of units plus the price at which no product will sell, which is called the y-intercept, or “b.” The demand function has the form y = mx + b, where “y” is the price, “m” is the slope and “x” is the quantity sold.

## How do you derive the Hicksian demand curve?

The level of demand for x represents the pure substitution effect of the increase in the price of x. We derive the Hicksian demand curve by projecting the demand for x downwards into the demand curve diagram.

## Why is compensated demand curve steeper?

So under compensation, as px rises, the consumer’s demand would fall only because of the SE of a rise in the relative price of X. Then as px falls or rises, the compensated demand would rise or fall along a steeper curve and the ordinary or the Marshallian demand would rise or fall along a flatter curve.
