Based on the axiomatic assumptions that the law of diminishing marginal utility, non-satiation assumption and social choice assumption based on personal preference, Arrow and Debreu study general equilibrium problems whose scope of research only involves the quantity, utility and price of commodities. Therefore, the conclusion can only explain the phenomenon of general equilibrium in the process of quantitative change, but not the non-equilibrium phenomenon in the qualitative change process. In view of the above problems, this paper will expand the research content to the range of quantity, quality, time, labor value, use value, value, exchange value and price based on the new theory of value, to comprehensively analyze the phenomenon of quantitative change and qualitative change in the process of commodity exchange, give the mathematical explicit and general solution of the unified price function of equilibrium and non-equilibrium, and prove the existence, uniqueness and stability of extremum solutions of various price functions. The purpose of this paper is to reveal the general economic law in the process of commodity exchange. At the same time, it will also briefly analyze why the general equilibrium theory can cause the errors of incompleteness, incompatibility and cyclic argumentation.
