7) for x2 gives the solution value: 1/(ρ−1) x2 = p2 ρ/(ρ−1) p1 y ρ/(ρ−1) + p2 . 5) and obtain 1/(ρ−1) x1 = p1 ρ/(ρ−1) p1 y ρ/(ρ−1) + p2 . 1), are the consumer’s Marshallian demand functions. 10) x2 (p, y) = pr−1 2 y . 11) Notice that the solutions to the consumer’s problem depend only on its parameters, p1 , p2 , and y. 11), will give different quantities of each good demanded. To drive this point home, consider Fig. 12. There, at prices p1 , p¯ 2 and income y¯ , the solutions to the consumer’s problem will be the quantities of x1 and x2 indicated.

Formally, this means we take the vector of market prices, p 0, as fixed from the consumer’s point of view. The consumer is endowed with a fixed money income y ≥ 0. Because the purchase of xi units of commodity i at price pi per unit requires an expenditure of pi xi dollars, the requirement that expenditure not exceed income can be stated as ni=1 pi xi ≤ y or, more compactly, as p · x ≤ y. We summarise these assumptions on the economic environment of the consumer by specifying the following structure on the feasible set, B, called the budget set: B = {x | x ∈ Rn+ , p · x ≤ y}.

Property 5 will be left as an exercise. For property 6, we must prove that e(p, u) is a concave function of prices. We begin by recalling the definition of concavity. Let p1 and p2 be any two positive price vectors, let t ∈ [0, 1], and let pt = tp1 + (1 − t)p2 be any convex combination of p1 and p2 . Then the expenditure function will be concave in prices if te(p1 , u) + (1 − t)e(p2 , u) ≤ e(pt , u). 4) To see that this is indeed the case, simply focus on what it means for expenditure to be minimised at given prices.
