Profit, where ,IS Oil ‘x’ allies from left to right that is PowerPoint ‘II’ towards ‘N’ the output, lei and ICE are two indifference curves which shows entrepreneur’s scale of preference between profit anti leisure. As the entrepreneur proceed From point ‘II’ his, output, starts increasing. At ‘SIN’ level of output profit is maximum that is ‘KN’ amount, but to achieve a balance between leisure and profit, ICE (Indifference curve) is tangent .
There arc many uses of indifference curves, in welfare economics it has been used extensively. In recent years the reverse indifference curve is used in showing the relationship between risk & uncertainly and the behavior of risk-lover’s.
Point ‘E’ gives us the equilibrium point between consumers and producers or between demand and supply. Which is one of the starting point of Checkers Olin’s theory of general equilibrium.
