Over the years, several formalizations and existence results for games with a continuum of players have been given. These include those of Schmeidler [18], Rashid [16], Mas-Colell [11], Khan and Sun [10] and Podczeck [15]. The level of generality of each of these existence results is typically regarded as a criterion to evaluate how appropriate is the corresponding formalization of large games. In contrast, we argue that such evaluation is pointless. In fact, we show that, in a precise sense… CONTINUE READING
