This paper presents a theory of equilibrium asset pricing that generalizes the recent work of Connor. The model extends Connor's results to more general sets of asset returns and consumer preferences, introduces production, and provides a framework for analyzing exact and approximate equilibrium asset pricing. The other major contribution of the paper is the introduction of geometric arguments that exploit the properties of induced preferences over assets. This method of analyzing asset pricing provides an intuitively appealing way of analyzing equilibrium asset pricing theories.
