Unformatted text preview: f is concave, g is convex, and Slaters constraint qualication holds, then the Saddlepoint condition holds. Note that facts 1. and 3. give properties so that the KuhnTucker conditions are necessary for a solution; 2. and 4. give properties for the KuhnTucker conditions to be sucient for a solution. I used fact 2. in the proof I gave for the First Welfare Theorem for the 2good quasilinear economy (under convexity assumptions on preferences and technologies). 1 You will nd a proof of facts 1. and 2. in R. Sundarams A First Course in Optimization , pages 194198. The two facts are summarized in his Theorem 7.16 on page 187. Note however that he subsumes nonnegativity constraints into his h function, whereas I list them separately. 1...
