The answer to each of these questions is probably: no. Negative answers to these sorts of questions are not considered relevant by the economist. The utility function is a formal concept useful to the economist, not to the consumer. By postulating (and possibly specifying) a utility function, the economist wants to create a tool useful for a correct description of observed consumer behaviour in the market and a reasonably good forecast of future behaviour. In the present state of the art, the best descriptions and therefore the best forecasts are obtained when using the assumption (or the implications) of utility maximization (as we shall see in later chapters); this fact is sufficient to reject criticisms based on the alleged 'formal' or 'unrealistic' character of our approach.

Is the homogeneity restriction realistic? Answer: General De Gaulle's monetary reform, putting one hundred old French Francs equal to one new Franc. This is a change in the monetary unit and implies a multiplication of all prices and incomes by k = 1/100. ) The restriction says that the French should continue to consume Homogeneity of degree zero 35 exactly the same quantities after the reform as though nothing happened. '. Whether the condition 2 is realistic is hard to say. On average it probably is.

The Slutsky equation: an intuitive approach The remaining general restrictions are implications of the so-called 'Slutsky equation, which also bears the well-deserved name of 'fundamental equation of the theory of value. The matter is so important that we will first approach it in an intuitive way, to make the economic implications clear. In the next section, we will proceed to a technical treatment with the help of the matrix algebra notation introduced by Anton Barten. By the same token a compact and unified presentation of all general restrictions will be given.
