The aim of this paper is to develop a framework for asset pricing in a continuous time general equilibrium model for a two country Lucas type economy. The model assumes that the output in the two countries follows a jump-diffusion stochastic process characterized by constant growth rates and volatilities and by log-normal amplitude of the jumps. Using this specification we deduce the fundamental evaluation equations for financial assets as well as a formula for the price of exchange rate options in this economy.
