About the second theorem of Welfare economics with stock markets

Abstract : This paper discusses necessary optimality conditions for multi-objective optimization problems with application to the Second Theorem of Welfare Economics. We use the extremal principle, since we consider non-convex sets and non-smooth functions. Particularly, we develop a slight generalization of the main result of Jofre--Rivera [9], which allows more flexibility in a stochastic economy with production and stock market. Formally, we define a stock market equilibrium through the necessary optimality conditions at a constrained Pareto optimal allocation. We show that the Second Theorem of Welfare Economics holds in a two-period framework. But, by mean of an example, we show that this later result is no longer true for multi-period economies.
