Proof: Let us first demonstrate the necessary condition. Since CE(q) ~ CE(q*) is equivalent to q E GQ (CE(q*)), then CE(q) ~ CE(q*) for all q E M PS(q*) implies M PS(q*) ~ GQ (CE(q*)). Let us now demonstrate the sufficient condition. , CE(q) ~ CE(q*), if q E MPS(q*). o Graphic representation: In the Marschak-Machina diagram, with x 1 > x 2 > x 3 , the set M PS(q*) is that portion of set {q: EV(q) = EV(q*)} which is northeast with respect to point q*. , that the indifference curve CE(q) CE(q*) be lower than MPS(q*), as represented in Figure 4.
