In other states, competitive wages might result in low profitability or inflationary pressures.

It is my conjecture, backed by one elementary example, that a formal treatment of incomplete markets and imperfect foresight will reinforce my conclusions. 22 What I offer today is barely sufficient to bring out some specific implications of uncertainty and incomplete markets for macroeconomics – barely sufficient, like when you sneak into the lagoon of a Polynesian atoll with half-a-foot clearance under your keel. The next step in my digression was to consider multiple sequences of temporary equilibria, and coordination failures.
