# Stability of equilibrium asset pricing models: A necessary and sufficient condition

@article{Borovika2021StabilityOE, title={Stability of equilibrium asset pricing models: A necessary and sufficient condition}, author={Jaroslav Borovi{\vc}ka and John Stachurski}, journal={J. Econ. Theory}, year={2021}, volume={193}, pages={105227} }

We obtain an exact necessary and sufficient condition for the existence and uniqueness of equilibrium asset prices in infinite horizon, discrete-time, arbitrage free environments. Through several applications we show how the condition sharpens and improves on previous results. We connect the condition, and hence the problem of existence and uniqueness of asset prices, with the recent literature on stochastic discount factor decompositions. Finally, we discuss computation of the test value… Expand

Existence and uniqueness of equilibrium in Lucas’ asset pricing model when utility is unbounded

- Economics

This note presents a proof of the existence of a unique equilibrium in a Lucas (Econometrica 46(6):1429–1445, 1978) economy when the utility function displays constant relative risk aversion, and the… Expand

Solving Asset Pricing Models When the Price-Dividend Function is Analytic

- Computer Science, Economics
- 2003

A new method is presented for solving asset pricing models, which yields an analytic price-dividend function of one state variable, which lets us assess the accuracy of any numerical solution procedure used in the asset pricing literature. Expand

Quantitative Asset Pricing Implications of Endogenous Solvency Constraints

- Economics

We study the asset pricing implications of an economy where solvency constraints are determined to efficiently deter agents from defaulting. We present a simple example for which efficient… Expand

Arbitrage and equilibrium in economies with infinitely many commodities

- Economics

Abstract An ‘arbitrage opportunity’ for a class of agents is a commodity bundle that will increase the utility of any of the agents and that has non-positive price. The non-existence of ‘arbitrage… Expand

Using Asset Prices to Measure the Persistence of the Marginal Utility of Wealth

- Economics

We derive a lower bound for the volatility of the permanent component of investors' marginal utility of wealth or, more generally, asset pricing kernels. The bound is based on return properties of… Expand
