AbstractAny demand equation satisfying Lau’s (1982) Fundamental Theorem of Exact Aggregation and is 0 homogeneous in prices and income will have a Gorman (1981) functional form for each income term. This property does not depend on symmetry or adding up. The implications of this result are illustrated by an extensive example.
