Abstract: We study the formation of prices in equilibrium. In our model, risk-neutral agents interact in continuous time, giving rise to a tractable equilibrium that reveals the influence of speculation, short-selling restrictions, and exogenous supply. Based on joint works with Johannes Muhle-Karbe and Jose Scheinkman.
