### How do I find the set of pareto optimal allocations?

In the economy you provided, set of feasible allocations is $\mathcal{F}=\{((x_1,y_1),(x_2,y_2))\in\mathbb{R}^2_+\times\mathbb{R}^2_+|x_1+x_2=2 \ \wedge \ y_1+y_2=1\}$ and is represented by points in ...

### Exchange economy with two agents, what's the competitive equilibrium?

I’m going to change the notation to one I’m more comfortable with: Let the goods be $x,y$, the consumers $A,B$; and the respective endowments $(w_{x_A},w_{y_A}), (w_{x_B},w_{y_B})$. Let’s set as ...

### Is there/can we define a notion of Giffen goods in pure exchange economies?

"Giffenness" may follow only from the preferences, you have to filter out endowment income effects. (Substitute a fixed monetary income $m$, for details, see e.g.; Varian's Intermediate ...

### General equilibrium with market power

Given a pure exchange economy: $u_A(x_A, y_A)=x_Ay_A$, $u_B(x_B, y_B)=x_By_B^2$ with endowments: $\omega_A=(80,150)$ and $\omega_B=(210,180)$ To find the equilibrium, we first find the price offer ...

### General equilibrium with market power

Not sure where you get lost. $u_B$ is Cobb-Douglas type, thus given a price vector $\textbf{p}$ and initial endowment $\textbf{w}^B$ it is easy to determine $x_1^B(\textbf{p}),x_2^B(\textbf{p})$. Once ...

### Exchange economy with two agents, what's the competitive equilibrium?

An allocation $((c^*_{a,1},c^*_{a,2}),(c^*_{b,1},c^*_{b,2}))$ is a competitive equilibrium allocation for the given economy supported by the price ratio $\frac{p_1^*}{p_2^*}$ if it satisfies the ...
