The Hahn Process with Firms but No Production
Franklin M. FisherThe earlier results of Hahn and Negishi  and Arrow and Hahn  on non-tatonnement in pure exchange are extended to the production case. However, just as in pure exchange, consumption does not take place until equilibrium is reached; in the present paper production is also delayed until that date. The result that the sum of target utilities of households can be taken to be a Lyapounov function is preserved; reduction in target utilities comes about partly as a consequence of reduction in target profits expected by firms out of equilibrium.
