I estimate a search-and-bargaining model of a decentralized market to quantify the effects of trading frictions on asset allocations and asset prices, and to quantify the effects of intermediaries that facilitate trade. Using business-aircraft data, I find that, relative to the Walrasian benchmark, 20.3 percent of the assets are misallocated, and prices are 6.61-percent lower. Dealers play an important role in reducing frictions: In a market with no dealers, 32.3 percent of the assets would be misallocated, and prices would decrease by 5.25 percent.
