In this chapter we improve some results in literature on the general financial equilibrium problem related to individual entities, called sectors, which invest in financial instruments as assets and as liabilities. Indeed the model, studied in the chapter, takes into account the insolvencies and we analyze how these insolvencies affect the financial problem. For this improved model we describe a variational inequality for which we provide an existence result. Moreover, we study the dual Lagrange problem, in which the Lagrange variables, which represent the deficit and the surplus per unit, appear and an economical indicator is provided. Finally, we perform the contagion by means of the deficit and surplus variables. As expected, the presence of the insolvencies makes it more difficult to reach the financial equilibrium and increases the risk of a negative contagion for all the systems.

Abstract

In this chapter we improve some results in literature on the general financial equilibrium problem related to individual entities, called sectors, which invest in financial instruments as assets and as liabilities. Indeed the model, studied in the chapter, takes into account the insolvencies and we analyze how these insolvencies affect the financial problem. For this improved model we describe a variational inequality for which we provide an existence result. Moreover, we study the dual Lagrange problem, in which the Lagrange variables, which represent the deficit and the surplus per unit, appear and an economical indicator is provided. Finally, we perform the contagion by means of the deficit and surplus variables. As expected, the presence of the insolvencies makes it more difficult to reach the financial equilibrium and increases the risk of a negative contagion for all the systems.
