Abstract

This paper studies a production economy with indivisibilities. We provide a characterization for all Walraian equilibria and a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of Walrasian equilibrium. We find a sufficient condition for every descening (ascending) price process to converge to a Walrasian equilibrium within finite periods of time.
