Equation (7) yields the direct opportunity cost oflabour, z, for this economy. Since Tlf ~ 0, one has z ~ w. e. the supply curve is horizontal), w = z. The logic behind this last rather startling result is, of course, clear enough. Given the unemployment ratio, u, for every worker hired in the urban sector, 1/u workers from the rural sector migrate.
