# QUASI-CORES IN A MONETARY ECONOMY WITH NONCONVEX PREFERENCES

@article{Shapley1966QUASICORESIA, title={QUASI-CORES IN A MONETARY ECONOMY WITH NONCONVEX PREFERENCES}, author={Lloyd S. Shapley and Martin Shubik}, journal={Econometrica}, year={1966}, volume={34}, pages={805} }

Abstract : A model of a pure exchange economy is investigated without the usual assumption of convex preference sets for the participating traders. The concept of core, taken from the theory of games, is applied to show that if there are sufficiently many participants, the economy as a whole will possess a solution that is sociologically stable--i.e., that cannot profitably be upset by any coalition of traders.

The competitive outcomes of an economic system are known, under quite general conditions, always to lie in the core of the associated cooperative game. It is shown here that every “market game”…
