Existence of Equilibrium in Discrete Market Games

Game Theory and Information from EconWPA

Abstract: In this paper we show that a feasible price allocation pair is a market equilibrium of a discrete market game if and only if it solves a linear programming problem. We use this result to obtain computable necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of market equilibrium. We assume that the production functions of the profit maximizing agents are discrete concave.
