We define the model of an abstract economy with differential (asymmetric) information and a measure space of agents.We generalizeN. C. Yannelis's result (2007), considering that each agent is characterised by a random preference correspondence instead of having a random utility function. We establish two different equilibrium existence results.

    Abstract. The existence -- under certain conditions -- of sunspot equilibria in overlapping generations models is a well-known theoretical result, but a lot of research has still to be made to understand whether and how such equilibria may occur as a consequence of a dynamic process.In this...

    The purpose of this paper is to study how the equilibrium prices vary with respect to the initial endowments in a linear exchange economy with a continuum of agents. We first state the model and give conditions of an increasing strength for existence, uniqueness and continuity of equilibrium...

    We have placed the volunteer military in the context of a simple general equilibrium model. In order to specify such a model, it was necessary to make assumptions regarding the nature of "threat functions" for civilians and soldiers. It has been found that assumptions regarding the utility and...

    The equivalence of Bayesian equilibria of two-person games with incomplete information and Nash equilibria of certain n-person polymatrix games is demonstrated by means of a specific "Selten model." As a byproduct, constructions recently developed for polymatrix games are available for Bayesian...

    Private information characteristics like resolve and audience costs are powerful influences over strategic international behavior, especially crisis bargaining. As a consequence, states face asymmetric information when interacting with one another and will presumably try to learn about each...

    In a financial economy with asymmetric information and incomplete markets, we study how agents, having no model of how equilibrium prices are determined, may still refine their information by eliminating sequentially “arbitrage state(s)”, namely, the state(s) which would grant the...
