16. The Hicksian demand for good 1. solution, xh (p, u), to the expenditure-minimisation problem is precisely the consumer’s vector of Hicksian demands. To get a clearer idea of what we have in mind, consider Fig. 16. If we wish to fix the level of utility the consumer can achieve at u in Fig. 16(a) and then confront him with prices p01 and p02 , he must face the depicted budget constraint with slope −p01 /p02 . Note that his utility-maximising choices then coincide with the expenditure-minimising quantities x1h (p01 , p02 , u) and x2h (p01 , p02 , u).

7, we may therefore choose ε > 0 small enough so that u + ε<¯u, and e(p, u + ε) v(p, yε ) ≥ u + ε. But u = v(p, y) so this says u ≥ u + ε, a contradiction. Hence, e(p, v(p, y)) = y. To prove 2, fix (p, u) ∈ Rn++ × [u(0), u¯ ]. 17), v(p, e(p, u)) ≥ u. Again, to show that this must be an equality, suppose to the contrary that v(p, e(p, u)) > u. There are two cases to consider: u = u(0) and u > u(0). We shall consider the second case only, leaving the first as an exercise.

16), e(p, v(p, y)) ≤ y. We would like to show in fact that equality must hold. So suppose not, that is, suppose e(p, u) 0 small enough so that u + ε<¯u, and e(p, u + ε) v(p, yε ) ≥ u + ε. But u = v(p, y) so this says u ≥ u + ε, a contradiction. Hence, e(p, v(p, y)) = y. To prove 2, fix (p, u) ∈ Rn++ × [u(0), u¯ ]. 17), v(p, e(p, u)) ≥ u.
