Externalities, Consumption Constraints and Regular Economies

Author

Abstract

We consider a general model of pure exchange economies with consumption externalities. Households may have different consumption sets and each consumption set is described by a function called possibility function. Utility and possibility functions depend on the consumptions of all households. Our goal is to give sufficient conditions for the regularity of such economies. We prove that, generically, economies are regular in the space of endowments and possibility functions.
