Intertemporal Equilibrium and Walras' Theory of Capital: a Projection Based Approach
In this paper we analyze the intertemporal competitive equilibrium of a walrasian model of capital accumulation. We prove the existence of equilibria by generalizing a result of Todd (1979). We overcome the indeterminacy in savings allocation to multiple types of capital goods by introducing a decreasing-return-to-scale storage technology. We Â…nally verify that, for stored capital goods, equality of rates of returns is satisÂ…ed in equilibrium.
