    Some elements of the economy are common knowledge among the agents if each agent knows them, knows that the others know them, knows that the others know that he knows and so on. Agents cannot agree to disagree. For a more precise definition of common knowledge see [700].Google Scholar

    A separating hyperplane Theorem useful to our goals is provided in [561]. Given two closed convex cones M and H in ℜn such that HM = 0, if H contains as linear subspace only 0 then there exists a nonzero linear functional F(-) such that F(x) < F(y) ∀xM and ∀yH with y ≠ 0.Google Scholar
