Income Offer Curve 

This curve illustrates the bundles of goods that are demanded by a consumer at different levels of income.

(Dwayne Benjamin, Toronto PPG 1002H)


If both goods in a two-good model are normal goods, the income offer curve will have a positive slope. The income offer curve connects the optimal levels of consumptions for both goods in a two-good model at different levels of income. The income offer curve is also known as the "income expansion path".
