Unformatted text preview: < 40 units of good 2, which is also a feasible allocation. Since p = A = MRS A , agent A is indiﬀerent between all the bundles on her budget line, so this is an optimal choice for her. Therefore, this is, in fact, another competitive equilibrium. This problem turned out to be quite involved and, therefore, would be above and beyond what you might be asked on the exam. However, there is an important point to be taken away from this problem: Since competitive equilibria can occur at corner solutions, it is not necessarily true that both agents’ MRS’s are the same at a competitive equilibrium allocation. 1...
