Economic surplus

In mainstream economics
economic surplus
, economic surplus, also characterized as total welfare or Marshallian excess , refers to two think quantities. Consumer excess or consumers' excess is the monetary gain obtained by consumers because they are able to get a product for a price that is less than the highest price that they would be willing to pay. Producer excess or producers' excess is the amount that producers benefit by selling at a market price that is advanced than the least that they would be willing to sell for.

Economist Paul A. Baran
economic surplus
introduced the concept of "economic surplus" to deals with novel complexities increase by the dominance of monopoly capital. With Paul Sweezy, Baran clarifying the importance of this innovation, its consistency with Marx's labor concept of value, and auxiliary relation to Marx's category of surplus value

Likewise, in the supply-demand diagram, producer surplus is the area beneath the equilibrium price but preparatory the gates curve. This reflects the fact that producers would have been will to gates the archetypal unit at a price lower than the equilibrium price, the support unit at a price preparatory that but still beneath the equilibrium price

, etc., yet they in fact earn the equilibrium determined for all the units they sell.
Consumer excess
The maximal amount a consumer would be will to pay for a computerized quantity of a good is the sum of the maximal price they would pay for the first unit, the maximal price they would be will to pay for the second unit, etc. Typically these prices are decreasing; they are computerized by the idiosyncratic demand curve

. For a computerized determined the consumer buys the amounts for which the consumer excess is highest, where consumer excess is the sum, finished all units, of the excess of the maximum willingness to pay finished the equilibrium price. The consumer's excess is highest at the largest be of units for which, even for the decide unit, the maximum willingness to pay is not below the market price

The consumer surplus is the area alto the exact trend and preparatory a horizontal lining at the current determined . If the exact trend is a straight line, the consumer surplus is the area of a triangle:
This show that if we see a tower in the equilibrium price and a travel in the equilibrium quantity, sometime consumer excess falls.
Distribution of get when determined travel
Consider an example of linear gates and exact curves. For an initials gates curve S0, consumer excess is the triangle preparatory the line formed by determined P0 to the exact line . If gates branch from S0 to S1, the consumers' excess branch to the triangle preparatory P1 and below the exact line . The change in consumer's excess is difference in area between the two triangles, and that is the consumer welfare associated with expansion of supply.
The second set of beneficiaries are consumers who buy more, and new consumers, those who will pay the new lower determined but not the higher determined . Their cumulative consumption makes up the difference between Q1 and Q0. Their consumer excess is the triangle bounded on the travel by the lining extending vertically upwards from Q0, on the right and top by the demand line, and on the bottom by the lining extending horizontally to the right from P1.
Rule of one-half
