Completing the Markets I The Problem: No matter how many bond and stock are chosen, the payments in the ”Fair Weather” state and the ”Bad Weather” state will be the same! I Suppose the firm will select 40 in ’GW’ and 30 in ’FW’ or ’BW’ to cover all outflows. Markets are sufficiently complete to do it: Q ( 2 × 2 ) = ± 20 43 20 28 ² Bond Stock Good W. Fair or Bad W. c ( 2 × 1 ) = ± 40 30 ² Good W. Fair or Bad W. n = Q - 1 · c = ± 20 43 20 28 ² - 1 ± 40 30 ² = ± 0.566 67 0.666 67 ² Bond Stock p = p S · n = ( 19 35 ) ± 0.566 67 0.666 67 ² = 34. 10

I Since 10 BA equals to 3.9 PA, the firm will be happy to sell the product for 34.10PA. What if it offers the product for 32PA? Q ( 3 × 3 ) = 20 43 40 20 28 30 20 28 20 Bond Stock Product Good W. Fair W. Bad W. p S ( 1 × 3 ) = ( 19 35 32 ) Bond Stock Product p atom = p S · Q - 1 = ( 19 35 32 ) 20 43 40 20 28 30 20 28 20 - 1 = ( 0.56 0.18 0.21 ) Good W. Fair W . Bad W.
