At a Nash–Walras equilibrium, individuals exchange commodities competitively, and, simultaneously, they interact strategically. Under standard assumptions, Nash–Walras equilibria exist; equilibrium profiles of actions are, typically, determinate but pareto suboptimal, though not constrained pareto suboptimal: a transfer of revenue need not suffice for a pareto improvement in welfare.
