A. Set up but do not solve. Suppose that a worker is 2 decades away from retirement and is considering

migrating to a new city a very long way away. In decade 1, the worker could earn $700,000 at their new job

or $750,000 at their current job. In decade 2, the worker could earn $800,000 at their new job or $750,000

at their current job. Assume the interest rate is 20%. The monetary cost of moving is $15,000 in decade 1

and $5,000 in decade 2. The psychic cost of moving is $5,000. Please set this up with the equation like we

did in class for the present value of net benefits of migration, but do not solve. (4 points)

B. If (hypothetically) the present value of net benefits of migration was $50,000.00, would the person

decide to move? Explain. (2 points)
