Multiple equilibria and chaos in a discrete tâtonnement process

Author

  • Kaizoji, Taisei

Abstract

The purpose of this note is to demonstrate a sufficient condition for discrete tâtonnement process to lead to chaos in a general equilibrium model with multiple commodities. The result indicates that as the speed of price adjustment increases the discrete tâtonnement process is complex in a general equilibrium economy in which there are multiple equilibria.
