# Amoroso–Robinson relation

(Redirected from Amoroso-Robinson relation)

The Amoroso–Robinson relation, named after economists Luigi Amoroso and Joan Robinson, describes the relation between price, marginal revenue, and elasticity of demand.

${\displaystyle {\frac {\partial R}{\partial x}}=p\left(1+{\frac {1}{\epsilon _{x,p}}}\right)}$,

where

• ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle {\frac {\partial R}{\partial x}}}$ is the marginal revenue,
• ${\displaystyle x}$ is the particular good,
• ${\displaystyle p}$ is the good's price,
• ${\displaystyle \epsilon _{x,p}<0}$ is the price elasticity of demand.
