Lumpy Demand and the Diagrammatics of Aggregation.
Shmanske, Stephen; Packey, Daniel
Journal of Economic Education, v30 n1 p64-74 Win 1999
Illustrates how a simple discontinuity in an individual's demand curve, or inverse-demand curve, affects the shape of market aggregate curves. Shows, for private goods, that an infinitesimal change in quantity can lead to large changes in consumption patterns; for collective goods, the analysis suggests a theory of coalition building. (DSK)
