The price process is as in e. Risk neutral probabilities at date one are given by: The rule we have derived in this chapter would, however, suggest that this is the wrong decision. The return on the market portfolio could be one of them, however. These issues intrrmediate at the heart of many political discussions in a world where redistribution across agents is not costless.
This relation holds for example with quadratic utility. Provided enough trading instruments exist, the consumption of the risk-averse agent can thus be completely smoothed out and this constitutes a Pareto Optimum. The link with the real side of the economy is also more apparent in the CCAPM which does provide a better platform to think about many important questions in asset management.
For arbitrary assets that have the same statistical characteristics as M i. Now we insert this ratio into the budget constraints of agent 2. Since there are 2 units invested in total, 2x is invested in technology 1.

Write the problem of a risk neutral agent: The allocation is Pareto optimal, as expected from the fact that markets are now complete. What is affected are the market clearing conditions: Again, L is preferred to P under transformation f. Given E c in the second period, var c is minimized. The model does not help us with this reasoning. The most the agent would be willing to pay is 1. If the risk free rate was constant, this would guarantee that the slope of the CML would be lower in the economy, and the reward for risk taking lower as well.
For full investment in the risky asset the first order condition has to satisfy the following: The put option has payoffs [ 1,1,1,0]. These are, interkediate fact, two ways of asking the same questions.
Most of the benefits still go to agent 1; however, the incremental benefit doonaldson him is less than in the prior situation because the security is less well situated to his consumption smoothing needs. If these redistributive payments and taxes are lump-sum transfers, they will not affect the decisions of individuals, nor the pricing of the security.
The valuation of the endowment stream is price space 2.
If we imagine, as in this question, a change in the primitives of the economy, we have to turn to our intuition to guess how these given returns would differ in the alternative set of circumstances. If one unit of Q is introduced: The answer to a indicates we should care since complete markets are required to guarantee that a Pareto optimal allocation is reached.

If one agent is risk-neutral, he will however be willing to bear all the risks. We can say agent 2 determines the quantities, and agent 1 determines the prices of the AD securities. Thus, given two distributions with the same mean, the one with the higher variance is less desirable; similarly, given two distributions with the same variance, the one with the greater mean return is preferred.
The two other cases follow immediately. Now only 1,0 is traded.
