Abstract: Do price forecasts of rational economic agents need to coincide in perfectly com- petitive complete markets? To address this question, we define an efficient tempo- rary equilibrium (ETE) within the framework of a two period economy. Although an ETE allocation is intertemporally efficient and is obtained by perfect competition, it can arise without the agents forecasts being coordinated on a perfect foresight price. We show that there is a one dimensional set of such Pareto efficient allocations for generic endowments.
