While I realize that it might not be used as often as it is on Math. SE, it would be nice to be able to use inline Latex every now and then to illustrate an algorithm or a math function. Would this be possible?

"For complete markets, the security market equilibrium is the same as the contingent commodity equilibrium but with far fewer spot markets." I wrote this down in my notes today on what my professor said but I don't really understand why this is the case. This may be the wrong way of posing a question but I thought this was rather interesting. Any suggestions on the matter are greatly appreciated.

I am quite ignorant in general equilibrium theory but i heard that some results relevant to macro have been derived in 'incomplete markets' frameworks, the argument being that in real life, there is not a market for every thing (especially 'things' conditioned on contingent states of nature). But what is the precise meaning of 'there is no market for this' ? For example, to my knowledge, there is no organized market where I can buy a 'right to x euros if the average wage in the economist's profession goes under y euros per month', although i could want to buy it.

If a company has project A and project B it can decide what is more profitable. The math in this example is straightforward. If human has activity A and activity B, how can someone calculate what is more efficient from economical standpoint? For example, take a taxi or use public transit to get from A and B. If human takes taxi, it will cost him 18 dollars, he or she will spend 20 minutes mostly sitting. If human takes public transit, he or she will spend $2.5, it will take 45 minutes including 10 minutes walking. How to account "energy", "motivation", "missing time", etc?
