    Abstract

    We show that, given any allocation f in the core of an exchange economy, we can find small income transfers and a Walrasian allocation relative to the transfers such that most agents are indifferent between f and . In addition, we can find small income transfers and an approximate Walrasian allocation relative to the transfers such that all agents are indifferent between and f.
