Example text

From this it follows immediately that ex-ante efficiency implies interim efficiency, which in turn implies ex-post efficiency. An alternative reasoning using negations is the following. If an allocation is interim inefficient, that is, an interim Pareto improvement is possible, then an ex-ante Pareto improvement is also possible. 8 In some papers interim efficiency refers to the expected utility conditional on the private signal and the price signal. 24 Information, Equilibrium, Efficiency Similarly, if an allocation is ex-post inefficient it is also interim inefficient.

There are also models where investors only observe a noisy signal of the price. In Allen (1985) the market clears only approximately since individuals’ demands are based on this noisy price. According to the dominated convergence theorem, the noisy component smoothes out discontinuities in the excess demand function. This allows the author to apply the fixed point theorem on excess demand functions (instead of on the price mappings) and show the existence of a partially revealing REE. Even though traders observe only a noisy signal of the equilibrium price in Allen (1985), they know the equilibrium relationships between prices and parameters that describe the uncertain environment precisely.

In general, this is ruled out in models with rational, utility maximizing agents. If even the pooled private information is fully reflected in the price, then a public announcement of this private information would not alter the price. Note that even if the price fully reflects information, it does not imply that everybody can infer this information from the price. Information Information, Equilibrium, Efficiency 25 revelation through prices is the focus of much of the theoretical literature on financial markets.
