5 Differentiable Demand Let x∗ 0 solve the consumer’s maximisation problem at prices p0 0 y > 0. If • u is twice continuously differentiable on Rn++ , • ∂u(x∗ )/∂xi > 0 for some i = 1, . . , n, and • the bordered Hessian of u has a non-zero determinant at x∗ , then x(p, y) is differentiable at (p0 , y0 ). 1 THE INDIRECT UTILITY FUNCTION The ordinary utility function, u(x), is defined over the consumption set X and represents the consumer’s preferences directly, as we have seen. It is therefore referred to as the direct utility function.

Because x0 ≥ 0, (p0 − p1 ) · x0 ≥ 0. 12) when p = p1 . We conclude that v(p1 , y) ≥ u(x0 ) = v(p0 , y), as desired. Property 5 says that a consumer would prefer one of any two extreme budget sets to any average of the two. Our concern is to show that v(p, y) is quasiconvex in the vector of prices and income (p, y). The key to the proof is to concentrate on the budget sets. 31 CONSUMER THEORY Let B1 , B2 , and Bt be the budget sets available when prices and income are (p1 , y1 ), and (pt , yt ), respectively, where pt ≡ tp1 + (1 − t)p2 and yt ≡ y1 + (1 − t)y2 .

Second, is it uniquely determined, so that u(x) is a well-defined function? To settle the first question, fix x ∈ Rn+ and consider the following two subsets of real numbers: A ≡ {t ≥ 0 | te x} B ≡ {t ≥ 0 | te x}. 1). Thus, the first question would be answered in the affirmative if we show that A ∩ B is guaranteed to be non-empty. This is precisely what we shall show. t ≥ 0, the vector te will be some point in Rn+ each of whose coordinates is equal to the number t, because te = t(1, . . , 1) = (t, .
