Abstracting from transactions costs, the equilibrium bargaining solution with sufficient traders is equivalent to the Walrasian equilibrium. For a sharecropping economy, this proposition establishes the validity of the competitive theory of share tenancy. For an economy with production externalities, the same proposition serves as a nontrivial version of the Coase theorem.
