Dynamic competitive economies with complete markets and collateral constraints


Gottardi, Piero; Kübler, Felix (2012). Dynamic competitive economies with complete markets and collateral constraints. NCCR 750, University of Zurich.

Abstract

In this paper we examine the competitive equilibria of a dynamic stochastic economywith complete markets. We show that the completeness of the market requires both theset of asset payo¤s and collateral levels to be su¢ ciently rich, so as to allow to decentral-ize the equilibrium allocations obtained in Arrow-Debreu markets subject to a series ofappropriate limited pledgeability constraints. We provide then su¢ cient conditions forequilibria to be Pareto e¢ cient and show that when collateral is scarce equilibria are alsooften constrained ine¢ cient, in the sense that imposing tighter borrowing restrictionscan make everybody in the economy better o¤.We derive su¢ cient conditions for the existence of Markov equilibria and show thatthey often have ?nite support. The model is then tractable and its equilibria can becomputed with arbitrary accuracy. We carry out on this basis a quantitative assessmentof the risk sharing and e¢ ciency properties of equilibria.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
