Problem 1: Aliinherits $10,000 from his great-great aunt in 2008. His great-great aunt’s willrequire that Ali spend the money before December 31, 2009. He has two spendingoptions: He can spend the amount either in 2008 or in 2009. Suppose this isAli’s only source of income and the interest rate on loans or savings is 10percent.(a) How much could Ali spend in 2008 if he only consumes in 2008?

Draw Ali’s budget constraint and optimal consumption bundle, consideringthat the spending in 2008 is measured along the horizontal axis.(c) Ali decides to spend$6,000 in 2008 and $4,400 in 2009. Show this optimal consumption bundle using abudget constraint and indifference curve diagram.
