In the paper we study relationships between generalized competitive equilibria defined in the paper of Świtalski (2016) and price equilibria for some variant of many-to-many market model of Gale- Shapley type and between price equilibria and stable matchings for such a model. Obtained results are used for proving theorems on existence of price equilibria in the many-to-many GS-model and in the many-to-many model generalizing the model of Chen, Deng and Ghosh (Chen et al., 2014).
