Asset Pricing in Models with incomplete markets and default


  • Karl Schmedders, Felix Kubler


We consider an infinite horizon exchange economy with incomplete markets and default. As in Geanakoplos and Zame (1998) financial securities are traded if the promises associated with them are backed by collateral. The only collateral available in our economy are shares of Lucas trees. We prove that equilibria always exist and develeop an algorithm to approximate them numerically
