Unformatted text preview: V ( p 1 , p 2 , I ) = ( 1- ) 1- I p 1 p 1- 2 Property 1 : HD0 in prices and income Property 2 : decreasing in prices Property 3 : increasing in income Property 4: Roys Identity x 1 ( p 1 , p 2 , I ) =- V ( p 1 , p 2 , I ) p 1 V ( p 1 , p 2 , I ) I Why does this work? V ( p 1 , p 2 , I ) is the Lagrangian at the best choices of x 1 and x 2 V ( p 1 , p 2 , I ) = L ( x * 1 , x * 2 , * ) = u ( x * 1 , x * 2 ) + * ( I-p 1 x * 1-p 2 x * 2 ) Why does this work 2?...
