2 Two-period model of storage A simple two-period storage model with no uncertainty can be used to illustrate several key principles. Production in periods 1 and 2 are denoted h1 and h2, respectively (these h parameters are exogenous, and they can be thought of as harvest levels). Inverse market demand, which is the same in each of the two periods, is given by P(x) where x denotes the quantity consumed and P′(x) < 0 because Prices over time (storage) 39 demand slopes down. If S units of period 1 production are stored and sold in period 2, then the pair of equilibrium prices for the two periods will equal P(h1 − S ) and P(h2 + S ), respectively.
