The Structure of Equilibria in Trading Networks with Frictions

Schlegel, J. C. ORCID: 0000-0002-8385-8349 (2021). The Structure of Equilibria in Trading Networks with Frictions. Theoretical Economics,


Several structural results for the set of competitive equilibria in trading networks with frictions are established: The lattice theorem, the rural hospitals theorem, the existence of side-optimal equilibria, and a group-incentive-compatibility result hold with imperfectly transferable utility and in the presence of frictions. While our results are developed in a trading network model, they also imply analogous (and new) results for exchange economies with combinatorial demand and for two-sided matching markets with transfers.
