Mikes' preferences for consumption and leisure may be represented by the Utility function: u(C, L) =  ( C-200)*(L-80) . His marginal utilities of leisure and consumption are (C-200) and ( L-80) respectively. There are 168 hours in the week available for both work an leisure. He earns a nominal wage of $20 and the price of consumption goods is $4. He also receives a nominal amount of $1280 of non-labour income as a transfer. Note: First, make it all real!
