Abstract: A talk about the paper Federico Echenique worked on with Siddharth Barman entitled \"The Edgeworth Conjecture with Small Coalitions and Approximate Equilibria in Large Economies.\" The paper shows that deciding if an allocation is approximately Walrasian can be done in polynomial time, even if finding the market equilibrium in intractable.
