This price–quantity locus is clearly that of the individual’s demand curve and, for all normal goods, it will lie diagonally between two marginal valuation curves, as shown: the higher MV2 curve being appropriate to the level of welfare reached when a person has, at the zero price, taken all the x that he wants; the lower MV1 curve being appropriate to his welfare before he buys any x at all.
