How is the graph for a wealth constraint affected by a decrease in interest rates?

Give me a link to a graph if possible pls. thanx

Answer:
The wealth constraint says that total consumption in period 1 and period 2 is determined by income in both periods and the interest rate.

Also, the slope of the wealth constraint is -(1+r).

So, if r falls, then the wealth constraint shifts in and the slope becomes flatter.

Intuitively, a drop in the interest rate lowers overall income (the shift in) and makes savings less attractive (making consumption in period 1 look more attractive).
