To Save Or Not To Save: The Fisher Game [chapter]

Ruta Mehta, Nithum Thain, László A. Végh, Adrian Vetta
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To this end, we define the Price of Imperfect Competition (PoIC) as the worst case ratio of the welfare at a Nash equilibrium in the induced game compared to the welfare at a Walrasian equilibrium.  ...  We examine the Fisher market model when buyers, as well as sellers, have an intrinsic value for money.  ...  Dynamics are a natural way to view how a game is played and a wellstudied question is whether or not the game dynamics converge to an equilibrium.  ...

"adaptive" instead of "optimizing" interest-rate rules when direct information on the natural rate is not available; the central bank's bounded responsiveness to excess inflation/deflation (or the irrelevance  ...  Hence "investment-saving imbalances" (ISI) are also a logical implication in any such situation, but they are not contemplated by standard macroeconomic models.  ...  Savers and investors compare these rates with the respective incentives to save or invest (in this sense, they need not know what the natural rate is).  ...
