4) To make further progress, we make the following assumptions that will be maintained unless stated otherwise. 2 Consumer Preferences is complete, transitive, continuous, strictly monoThe consumer’s preference relation tonic, and strictly convex on Rn+ . 3 it can be represented by a real-valued utility function, u, that is continuous, strictly increasing, and strictly quasiconcave on Rn+ . In the two-good case, preferences like these can be represented by an indifference map whose level sets are non-intersecting, strictly convex away from the origin, and increasing north-easterly, as depicted in Fig.

T). If t = 0, then te = (0, . . , 0) coincides with the origin. If t = 1, then te = (1, . . , 1) coincides with e. If t > 1, the point te lies farther out from the origin than e. For 0

Because v(p, y) is the largest utility level attainable at prices p and with income y, this implies that v(p, y) ≥ u. Consequently, the definitions of v and e also imply that v(p, e(p, u)) ≥ u ∀ (p, u) ∈ Rn++ × U . 17) 42 CHAPTER 1 The next theorem demonstrates that under certain familiar conditions on preferences, both of these inequalities, in fact, must be equalities. 8 Relations Between Indirect Utility and Expenditure Functions Let v(p, y) and e(p, u) be the indirect utility function and expenditure function for some consumer whose utility function is continuous and strictly increasing.
