The increased interest in this type of formulation on the part of the economics profession stems partly from curiosity as to how aggregate economic phenomena are created, is essential and also from the realization that an equilibrium account in order to evaluate hypothetical policy interventions, The model in the first part is a natural development McKenzie tradition.

Differentiate and recall t h a t a~o~(p) = ~o(p,~). For (i) differentiate v(Ap, A~) - v(~,t~) = 0 with respect to ,t and evaluate at A -- 1. It is also (ii) which accounts for the usefulness of indirect utility functions. Indeed, (ii) tells us t h a t it is very easy to derive d e m a n d from indirect utility (this is in contrast to deriving d e m a n d from the direct u). It is "almost" like taking a derivative. T h e "almost" is for the 1/o~o99(p, ~ ) factor. ). We discuss two illustrative examples.

Because S is homotopic to the g - 1 ball it has a nonzero Euler characteristic. Hence f has at least one zero. 3 For later reference it is convenient to rephrase the above a r g u m e n t in a more general manner. Admittedly at this point it will appear as uncalled for generality. A tangent vector field f or, more precisely, its graph, can be viewed as a section of the tangent bundle r$ of ,q. The total space of r$ is T S = {(p,v) E S × R t : p" v = 0}. ,a0(p) = (p,O), all p 6 S. Then p is an equilibrium if and only if oo (p) = (p, 0).
