Reposition the locator point each time the locator is moved.


Manipulate[
 Module[{f, b, xmin = 0, xmax = 100, k},
  b = pt1[[2]] - m*pt1[[1]];
  k[{x_, y_}, a_] := x^a y^(1 - a);


  pt2 = {#[[1]], m #[[1]] + b} &[pt2];


  Plot[{(k[pt1, a]/x^a)^(1/(1 - a)), m x + b},
   {x, 0, 100},
   AxesOrigin -> {0, 0},
   PlotRange -> {{xmin, xmax}, {Automatic, 200}}]],
 {{a, .5, "Shape (a)"}, .2, .8, .01,
  Appearance -> "Labeled"},
 {{m, -1, "Slope (m)"}, -3, -.4, .01,
  Appearance -> "Labeled"},
 {{pt1, {10, 80}}, Locator},
 {{pt2, {50, 50}}, Locator}]
