Course Description

Game theory studies the interactions and conflicts between decision-making agents. This course focuses on its application to economic issues such as market structure, auctions and bargaining. It begins by introducing the concepts of action, strategies, cooperation and non-cooperation, and equilibrium. The assumption of complete information is then relaxed and the application of game theory to situations of incomplete and imperfect information is explored. The course draws on real world examples to illustrate core concepts, such as the Prisoner's Dilemma and buying votes. These examples borrow from micro, macro and experimental economics.
