Scarf's Activity Analysis Example.

Keywords: mixed complementarity problem, activity analysis, general equilibrium model


Positive Variable
   p(c) 'commodity price'
   y(s) 'production'
   i(h) 'income';

   mkt(c)    'commodity market'
   profit(s) 'zero profit'
   income(h) 'income index';

* distinguish ces and cobb-douglas demand functions:
mkt(c).. sum(s, a(c,s)*y(s)) + sum(h, e(c,h))
     =g= sum(h$(esub(h) <> 1), (i(h)/sum(cc, alpha(cc,h)*p(cc)**(1 - esub(h))))
                             * alpha(c,h)*(1/p(c))**esub(h))
                             + sum(h$(esub(h) = 1), i(h)*alpha(c,h)/p(c));

profit(s).. -sum(c, a(c,s)*p(c)) =g= 0;

income(h).. i(h) =g= sum(c, p(c)*e(c,h));

i.l(h)  = sum(c, p.l(c)*e(c,h));
p.lo(c) = 0.00001$(smax(h, alpha(c,h)) > eps);

* fix the price of numeraire commodity:
i.fx(h)$(ord(h) = 1) = i.l(h);
