Abstract

There exists an extensive literature on economies with price rigidities, where some constraints on the set of admissible price systems are exogenously given. In this paper a model of a political economic system is described where the price rigidities are endogenously chosen by political candidates. The economic system is modelled by a general equilibrium model and the political system as a game between political candidates who maximize political supports. Conditions for the existence of a political economic equilibrium and characterizations of this equilibrium are given. Moreover, it is shown that, generically, political candidates will not choose price regulations leading to a Walrasian equilibrium, but instead will impose price regulations upon the economic system which exclude all Walrasian equilibria and therefore lead to rationing of consumers.
