Equilibrium in production and futures markets
AbstractThis paper develops a general equilibrium analysis of production and futures markets with free entry/exit. It does so by analyzing partial equilibria with a reference utility level and entry/exit, first in a product market and then in a futures market. The markets are then considered jointly. Comparative statics results arise due to a mismatch between the source of disequilibrium and the compensation mechanism which restores reference utility. Risk aversion is a sufficient structure on preferences to determine most of the results. However, the well-known separation result is modified somewhat in the two-market model.
