We introduce an extension of Kaneko’s ratio equilibrium to the case of economies with many public and private goods. Specifically, we employ a general production model where public goods may be inputs in the production of public goods. Using the accounting concept of transfer prices, we propose a definition of ratio equilibrium that generalizes Kaneko’s. We prove that, under standard assumptions, ratio equilibria exist and are free-access core allocations and therefore Pareto efficient.
