Analysis of a dynamic, decentralized exchange economy

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A model of a dynamic exchange economy is presented. Similarly to the Walrasian equilibrium problem, each consumer is characterized by a feasible set and by an instantaneous demand function, that depends on the price vector, time, and the commodity holding. The commodity holding of each consumer varies, at each moment, according to this instantaneous demand function. We show that the market can choose prices that keep the commodity holding of each consumer within his consumption set, while ensuring that the aggregate commodity holding satisfies the scarcity constraints of the market.
