A Practical Short-run Approach to Market Equilibrium

  • Anthony Horsley
  • Andrew J Wrobel

The "short-run approach" calculates long-run producer optima and general equilibria bybuilding on short-run solutions to the producer's profit maximization problem and onprofit-based valuation of the fixed inputs. We outline this method and illustrate it on anexample of peak-load pricing.
