Abstract

We analyze a model with incomplete financial markets, where money is needed to pay taxes. Equilibria exist, are typically regular and not Pareto optimal. Moreover, generically, there exists a redistribution of money among households which leads to a Pareto superior equilibrium. The intervention occurs only in the first period and it does not require either closing markets or upper bounds on the number of households.
