On the Properties of General Equilibrium with Default in Economies with Incomplete Markets
AbstractIn this paper we study the properties of general equilibrium with default in economies with incomplete markets. It is noted that, in equilibrium, an agent makes two types of comparisons when deciding whether to participate in the credit market: as a lender and as a borrower. As a consequence, the equilibrium can be linked to levels of punishment, perception of default and promised returns. An analysis of equilibrium in the case of economies with two homogeneous types of agents is also presented, from which it can be deduced that in equilibrium under partial default the personal valuations of default for the buyer and the seller are equal.
