An Excel Spreadsheet Numerical Example of a Giffen Good part of Starting Point: Teaching and Learning Economics:Teaching Methods:Teaching with Spreadsheets:Examples
This file enables a professor or student to use Excel to generate Giffen behavior. It provides a concrete example of a utility function that exhibits the paradoxical property that more of a good is purchased as its price rises, ceteris paribus. For every price increase, optimal consumption is tracked and it is obvious that an upward sloping demand curve is created.
