ECN 741: Public Economics Fall 2008 First observe that in any equilibrium U i y ( s t ) U i c ( s t ) = U j y ( s t ) U j c ( s t ) = - w ( s t )(1 - τ ( s t )) (32) U i c ( s t ) U i c ( s 0 ) = U j c ( s t ) U j c ( s 0 ) = p ( s t ) β t Pr ( s t ) p ( s 0 ) i,j Therefore, given the aggregate consumption and labor output ( C ( s t ) ,L ( s t )) , the assignment of allocation of consumption and labor output { c i ( s t ) ,y i ( s t ) } are efficient. In other words, given any sequence of aggregate output ( C ( s t ) ,L ( s t )) , there are weights ϕ = ± ϕ 1 ,...,ϕ N ² such that i π i ϕ i = 1 and { c i ( s t ) ,y i ( s t ) } is the solution to U m ( C ( s t ) ,L ( s t ); ϕ ) max { c i ,y i } X π i ϕ i U i ( c i ,y i ) sub. to X i π i c i = C ( s t ) , X i π i y i = L ( s t ) Denote the solution by c i = h i c ( C,L ; ϕ ) , y i = h i y ( C,L ; ϕ ) (33) therefore ( c i ( s t ) ,y i ( s t )) = h i ( C,L ; ϕ ) in which h i = ( h i c ,h i y ) . Note also that U m C ( C ( s t ) ,L ( s t ); ϕ ) = ϕ i U i c ( c i ,y i ) (34) U m L ( C ( s t ) ,L ( s t ); ϕ ) = ϕ
