Arbitrary small indivisibilities


  • Michael Florig


Arbitrary small indivisibilities may play an important role when the strong survival assumption does not hold. A hierarchic price is a finite ordered family of price vectors . It extends the notion of exchange values proposed by Gay [15]. These price notions were introduced in order to establish the existence of a generalized competitive equilibrium without the strong survival assumption. We show that a hierarchic price models phenomena related to small indivisibilities which the standard approach may not capture. More precisely, we prove in the framework of linear exchange economies that a hierarchic price may be seen as a standard price of an economy with arbitrary small indivisibilities.
