3 With price-taking assumed rather than proved, there is no over-riding reason why a formalisation of **perfect** **competition** must limit itself to a setting with a finite, as opposed to an infinite number of (perfectly-divisible) commodities. Indeed, another set of pioneering papers of Debreu, Hurwicz and Malinvaud, written in the fifties with an eye to a theory of intertemporal allocation but over a time horizon that is not itself arbitrarily given, fixed and finite so to speak, did consider the decentralisation of efficient production plans as profit maximising ones. But again, it was only two decades later that the work of Bewley, Peleg-Yaari, Gabszewicz and Mertens inaugurated sustained attempts to provide a general formalisation of **perfect** **competition** over infinite- dimensional commodity spaces, see Khan-Yannelis (1991). The work can again be categorised under Koopmans’ three headings of the theory, but relative to its finite-dimensional counterpart, it emphasised that the separation of disjoint convex sets, and the use of aggregate resources to furnish a bound on the consumption sets to ensure compactness, prove to be matters of somewhat greater subtlety. In short, a compact set of an infinite-dimensional commodity space is “rather large” and its cone of non-negative elements “rather small”. Indeed, as Negishi’s method of proof attained dominance, the imbrication of the convexity assumption in a clear demarcation of fixed-point theorems for issues of existence and separating hyperplane theorems for those of decentralisation, no longer obtains. The subject is surveyed in Mas-Colell-Zame (1991), but another survey is perhaps overdue as exploration of individual mathematical structures, ordered structures in particular, reveal hitherto unforeseen essentials, and increasing returns to scale and other non-classical phenomena are inevitably accommodated; see the references of Aliprantis, et al. (2002, 2006), on the one hand, and those of Shannon (1999) and Bonnisseau (2002) on the other.

a) reality versus theoretical market model - in a double sense: first, by the development of a theory and theoretical analysis of **perfect** **competition** which get (step by step) far away from real market, especially by imposed of new and new restrictions and conditions, and on the other hand, from the evolution of real economic life - changes which did not find a proper places into the model;

In this paper we have examined the existence of involuntary umemployment using a **perfect** **competition** model with decreasing or constant returns to scale. We have derived involuntary unemployment from indivisibility of labor supply. We think that although the labor supply must not be infinitely divisible, it need not be infinitely indivisible. In the future research we want to analyze the problem of involuntary unemployment in a monopolistic **competition** model with constant or increasing returns to scale technology.

Among the policy measures that help tackle the problem of pollution, emission trading systems are very popular, and are often considered as the best instrument. This mechanism offers a number of advantages for business and policymakers, which have fostered the creation of emission trading systems, and the development of numerous theoretical models to analyse these markets and the price formation of allowances. The aim of this paper is to provide a wide overview of this literature, with a focus on contributions dealing with dynamic partial equilibrium modeling, in case of **perfect** **competition**. After an introduction on the economics of pollution control and the origins of emission trading, we have begun with a review of the earliest static models investigating a number of factor that can affect the effectiveness of emission trading, such as market power, transaction-costs, political pressures, etc. Next, we have presented more recent dynamic models investigating implications of a range of questions including, inter-temporal trading, stochastic emissions, and the rules of the EU ETS.

As is well-known Walrasian analysis is built upon the Hypothesis of **Perfect** **Competition**, which can be taken as in Mas-Colell (1980) to state: “...that prices are publicly quoted and are viewed by the economic agents as ex- ogenously given”. Attempts to go beyond Walrasian analysis have in par- ticular involved giving “a theoretical explanation of the Hypothesis itself” (Mas-Colell (1980)). Among these the most remarkable are without doubt the 19th century contributions of Bertrand, Cournot and Edgeworth (for an overview, see Stigler (1965)). The Cournot approach was explored inten- sively, in a general equilibrium framework, in the symposium issue entitled “Non-cooperative Approaches to the Theory of **Perfect** **Competition**” (Jour- nal of Economic Theory, Vol. 22 (1980)).

With the exception of Lauermann (2006b) and Atakan (2008), all papers in the match- ing and bargaining literature that we are aware of consider speci c bargaining protocols. Lauermann (2006b) considers a general class of bargaining games. He shows that equilib- ria converge to **perfect** **competition** provided that the sequence of outcomes of the game satis es certain conditions. Our conditions are di erent in that they are conditions on the primitives of the game. Atakan (2008) provides an important extension of the results of Satterthwaite and Shneyerov (2007) to multiple units. Atakan (2008) allows the players to propose general bargaining mechanisms, and shows that they can do no better than use simple TIOLI o er strategies. With this justi cation, he con nes the actual analysis to the simple random-proposer TIOLI games.

the number of other traders with whom each individual trader interacts. This contrasts with global market size–the total number of traders active in the entire market–which is always large in our model. Thus as the time period δ shrinks each trader expects to match an increasing number of times before becoming discouraged and exiting. Each trader’s local market becomes big over time as opposed to big at a point in time as is the case in the standard model of **perfect** **competition** or in the centralized k-double auction. This creates a strong option value eﬀect for every trader. Even if a buyer has a high value, he has an increasing incentive as δ decreases to bid low and hold out for an oﬀer near the low end of the oﬀer distribution. Therefore all serious buyers bid within an increasingly narrow range just above the minimum oﬀer any seller makes. A parallel argument applies to sellers, with the net eﬀect being, as δ becomes small, all bids and oﬀers concentrate within an interval of decreasing length, i.e., the trading range converges to a single price.

A substantial literature exists that investigates the non-cooperative foundations of **perfect** **competition** using dynamic matching and bargaining games. 1 Most of the work of which we are aware has assumed complete information in the sense that each partic- ipant knows every other participant’s values (or costs) for the traded good. The books of Osborne and Rubinstein (1990) and Gale (2000) contain excellent discussions of both their own and others’ contributions to this literature. Papers that have been particu- larly influential include Mortensen (1982), Rubinstein and Wolinsky (1985, 1990), Gale (1986, 1987) and Mortensen and Wright (2002). Of these, our paper is most closely re- lated to the models and results of Gale (1987) and Mortensen and Wright (2002). The two main diﬀerences between their work and ours are that (i) when two traders meet they reciprocally observe the other’s cost/value rather than remaining uninformed and (ii) the terms of trade are determined as the outcome of a full information bargaining game rather than an auction. The first diﬀerence–full versus incomplete information– is fundamental, for the purpose of our paper is to determine if a decentralized market can elicit private valuation information at the same time it uses that information to assign the available supply eﬃciently. The second diﬀerence is natural given our focus on incomplete information.

These stations face a large amount of **competition**, not only from each other but also from all nearby gas stations. If a firm raises its price it loses a vast number of customers so each firm is severely limited in raising its price. And there is no need for a firm to lower its price much below the going price because the firm can already increase its sales drastically with only a slight lowering of its price.

The inverse of τ can also be interpreted as a measure of market size that analogous to the number of traders n in the centralized double auction literature. To see why, recall that in a centralize market, traders are competing intratemporally with all other traders in the same side. On the contrary, in the dynamic matching environment here, traders, whenever they bargain with their partners, are not directly competing with all other traders in the same side because of the matching frictions. But they do intertemporally compete with others in the sense that their partners have the option to search another to trade with. Since 1/τ is proportional to arrival rates, it measures the local market size that corresponds this intertemporal **competition**.

In a small country with **perfect** **competition**, tariffs and quotas alter the incentives faced by consumers and producers similarly. Under the assumption that quotas are uniformly assigned across foreign producers, import tariffs and quotas both affect price, quantity, home producer surplus, and home consumer surplus similarly. 1 However, if the home market is imperfectly competitive, say for instance it is home to a single, non-discriminating monopolist, an import quota leads to higher prices and lower quantity for the home country consumers than an import tariff. This is because once an import quota is exhausted; the remaining demand is met by the

Of these two conditions for a **perfect** Bayesian equilibrium, the …rst condition, reason- ability, might lead it to being incapable of satisfying the weak consistency and the subgame **perfect** Nash equilibrium condition in general multi-period games with observed actions. To be precise, the incapability of a **perfect** Bayesian equilibrium is caused by the weakness of Bayes’ rule. Bayes’ rule is a way of formulating a conditional probability or a conditional probability density function and de…nes them as a fraction between two probabilities or a fraction between two probability density functions. So, Bayes’ rule can be employed only when the probability of a given event, which becomes a denominator in the fraction, is pos- itive or when the probability density functions are well-de…ned. This limited application of Bayes’ rule consequently gives rise to the incapability of a **perfect** Bayesian equilibrium in general games.

As mentioned before, this process also contributes to the variation of the PP. First, the formation of a PP demonstrates its grammaticalized construction that consists of an auxiliary verb in the present tense, followed by a past participle. As the English **Perfect** tense such as have eaten developed from the possessive verb have , the Romance **Perfect** originated from the Classical Latin possessive verb habere (Bybee, 2008) . Secondly, the construction that expresses the PP function can further develop to extend to new types of uses. In this instance, Schwenter (1994a) notes that the construction that marks present relevance is able to develop into a marker of past events that lack present relevance. This development captures how a grammatical element gains broader functions, and it characterizes the process of the Romance **Perfect**, that Squartini and Bertinetto (2000:404) call the ‘aoristic drift’. These developments of grammaticalization are proposed to be irreversible
