Example text

Furthermore, the appendix to this essay also shows numerically that an increase in the demand for basics in the North, DB(N), accompanied by a positive shift in the excess demand for basics of the North, WO (which intersects xg from above), lead to a drop in the price of basics, p8, and in the purchasing power of the South. This is due to the fact that there is also a positive shift in the excess supply curve of the South when JD increases in the North. The point is simple: In a gen­ eral equilibrium context, a change in an exogenous parameter leads typi­ cally to simultaneous changes in excess supply and excess demand curves, so that even in stable markets, an outward shift in excess demand may be accompanied by a lower new equilibrium price.

This figure reproduces Figure 2(b) in Chichilnisky (1981), where the curves have been computed numerically from the basic data set. l, we obtain (WD)'. 1. 9). g. , excess demand for the North) and in which the zero-profit cross-equilibrium relation Xf is confused with an (unmovable) excess supply curve. Walrasian stability of the model, in which we all agree, would in this erroneous partial equi­ librium view lead to an excess demand curve that meets Xf from above and must shift downward to reach a lower new equilibrium price.

This is also done in the following section. The model's specification with equations (2. 17) and (2. 1 8) was used in Chichilnisky (1981) to study the impact of an industrial expansion in the North (an increase in the exogenous value of / D(N)) [Proposition 2, Chichilnisky (1981)). XJ, is simply a change in a number that is exogenously given to the model. Such an exogenous change can be interpreted in many different fashions, thus making the results rather general. For instance, an increase in / D(N) could be a result of a shift in underlying preferences in the North leading to a new equilib­ rium level of demand for industrial goods; see Section f of the appendix.
