4 Sufficiency of Consumer’s First-Order Conditions Suppose that u(x) is continuous and quasiconcave on Rn+ , and that (p, y) 0. 10), then x∗ solves the consumer’s maximisation problem at prices p and income y. 28: For all x, x1 ≥ 0, because u is quasiconcave, ∇u(x)(x1 − x) ≥ 0 whenever u(x1 ) ≥ u(x) and u is differentiable at x. 10). Then ∇u(x∗ ) = λ∗ p, ∗ p · x = y. If x∗ is not utility-maximising, then there must be some x0 ≥ 0 such that u(x0 ) > u(x∗ ), p · x0 ≤ y. 3) p · tx < y. 4) 0 for some t ∈ [0, 1] close enough to one.

13. 13. Indirect utility at prices p and income y. 29 CONSUMER THEORY There are several properties that the indirect utility function will possess. Continuity of the constraint function in p and y is sufficient to guarantee that v(p, y) will be continuous in p and y on Rn++ ×R+ . ) Effectively, the continuity of v(p, y) follows because at positive prices, ‘small changes’ in any of the parameters (p, y) fixing the location of the budget constraint will only lead to ‘small changes’ in the maximum level of utility the consumer can achieve.

4) can thus be cast equivalently as the problem of maximising the utility function subject to it represents strictly monotonic preferences. However, although u (x) is strictly positive for most values of x, it is zero whenever x = π + 2πk, k = 0, 1, 2, . . 9. Budget set, B = {x | x ∈ Rn+ , p · x ≤ y}, in the case of two commodities. x2 y/p 2 B Ϫp 1 p 2 y/p 1 x1 the budget constraint. t. p · x ≤ y. 5) Note that if x∗ solves this problem, then u(x∗ ) ≥ u(x) for all x ∈ B, which means that x∗ x for all x ∈ B.
