Equilibrium price?Q. The equilibrium price does not change if demand increases when price elasticity of demand is fully elastic? (Other conditions are the same) This problem is wrong. But I think it's right and it doesn't make sense. I hope somebody can help me understand. [ATTACH=CONFIG]7242[/ATTACH] I can't sleep because of this problem :cower::miserable:
Concurrent PhDs in 2 countries and 2 universities
corporateguy posted a topic in PhD in BusinessI received a few admissions offers for PhD in management. I have rejected all but two (so I have 2 in hand offers). It's a tough choice: one school has better location and stipend, the other has a better ranking and shorter program. I am considering whether it might make sense to enrol in both, rather than choose. In a sense they are complementary. In terms of coursework, there are synergies - both have similar required curriculum, so there won't be a ton of extra work that I'd need to put in. In terms of the actual research output, based on my ongoing work, I feel confident that I should be able to produce 2 separate, different and competent pieces of PhD theses. Any thoughts/perspectives on this idea? Is this legal? Esp. in terms of immigration rules. Any thoughts on what the universities may say about this? (I don't want to bring this up with either, if it means I would piss them off and get my offer rescinded) Possibly relevant details: Both are in Europe (one in EU), and I am a third country national. The funding at both is via so-called assistantship "jobs" (which are taxed as such), not true stipends. The locations of the universities/countries are such that it is practical, at least financially to attend both for the coursework...even if that means round trips every week.
Profile Evaluation for Fall 2019
econpiggie posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHi there! I was hoping to get your thoughts on my profile, which schools / programs might make sense to apply to, and if there's things I could be doing in the next year to strengthen my application.

Are there certain programs that would make more sense given my interests - I've had professors mention the PEG program at HKS and am wondering if the political-econ or business-econ mix might make sense given my more applied interests. 2) Should I find an online course for real-analysis to take during the summer of 2019?
