Assume the consumer can only make one exchange. 1. Show that if the exchange functions are continuous and the consumer’s preference relation satisfies monotonicity and con- tinuity, then a solution to the consumer problem exists. 2. Explain why strong convexity of the preference relation is not sufficient to guarantee a unique solution if the functions f and g are increasing and convex. 3. What does the statement “the function f is increasing and con- vex” mean? 4. Suppose both functions f and g are differentiable and concave and that the product of their derivatives at point 0 is 1. Sup- pose also that the preference relation is strongly convex. Show that under these conditions, the agent will not find two dif- ferent exchanges, one exchanging good 1 for good 2, and one exchanging good 2 for good 1, optimal.exchanging good 2 for good 1, optimal....
