Theory of the Core

Discipline: Economics

Developed by Irish-born economist and statistician Francis Edgeworth (1845-1926), theory of the core analyzes those parts of the economy which cannot be improved upon by individual or concerted action.

Theory of the core is a fundamental equilibrium aspect of modern macroeconomics, the core coinciding with a set of price equilibria under perfect competition.
