Buyer's Equilibrium with Capacity Constraints and Restricted Mobility: a Recursive Approach
AbstractWe study a decentralized trading model as in Peters (1984), where heterogeneous market participants face a trade-o between price and trade probability. We present a novel proof of existence of a unique demand vector in Nash equilibrium, based on a recursive approach that exploits the monotonicity of matching functions.
