The consumer theory
we teach at our universities presumes that purchases made by the head of the household satisfy all members of the household and therefore consumer behaviour is always perfectly rational.
It exists everywhere throughout advanced microeconomics, from the beginning of consumer theory
to the end of production theory.
posits that consumers will balance the marginal utility of value addition and marginal cost of one unit of value-added food.
Inverting cost function into indirect utility, via Roy's Identity, we obtain Marshallian demand functions which we parameterize as the Generalized Almost Ideal demand system, GAI (Bollino, Economics Letters, 1987, a generalization of the Almost Ideal system introducing committed quantities), complying with consumer theory
restrictions, i.e., adding up, symmetry, homogeneity and heterogeneous consumer exact aggregation constraints.
