    Abstract

    This note will extend the research presented in Brown & Rogers (2009) to the case of CRRA agents. We consider the model outlined in that paper in which agents had diverse beliefs about the dividends produced by a risky asset. We now assume that the agents all have CRRA utility, with some integer coefficient of relative risk aversion. This is a generalisation of Brown & Rogers which considered logarithmic agents. We derive expressions for the state price density, riskless rate, stock price and wealths of the agents. This sheds light on the effects of risk aversion in an equilibrium with diverse beliefs.
