Indivisibilities, Inferior Goods, and Giffen Goods
Rodney Garratt ()
Canadian Journal of Economics, 1997, vol. 30, issue 1, 246-51
This paper shows how the presence of an indivisible good can cause a divisible good to be inferior and possibly Giffen. Indivisibility is shown to be central to a discussion by J. R. Hicks on inferior goods.
