Sample text

Every strategy of Player 1 must, for example, prescribe a choice of Y or N at t = 1 in the case that she herself offers (1/2, 1/2) at t = 0, and Player 2 rejects this offer and makes a counteroffer, even if the strategy calls for Player 1 to make an offer different from (1/2, 1/2) at t = 0. Thus Player 1’s strategy has to say what she will do at nodes that will never be reached if she follows the prescriptions of her own strategy at earlier time periods. At first this may seem strange. In the statement “I will take action x today, and tomorrow I will take action m in the event that I do x today, and n in the event that I do y today”, the last clause appears to be superfluous.

4. In the case of bargaining over the division of a dollar, we interpret xi as the amount that Player i receives. In the case of negotiating the sale price of an indivisible good, x1 is the price the buyer pays to the seller. In the model of wage negotiation, x1 is the profit of the firm. The bargaining procedure is as follows. The players can take actions only at times in the (infinite) set T = {0, 1, 2, . }. In each period t ∈ T one of the players, say i, proposes an agreement (a member of X), and the other player (j) either accepts the offer (chooses Y ) or rejects it (chooses N ).

4 The Kalai–Smorodinsky solution f KS . to argue that it also satisfies INV. This solution is known as the Kalai– Smorodinsky solution. PAR: Consider the solution f d defined by f d (S, d) = d. This solution satisfies INV, SYM, and IIA and is different from the Nash solution. For each of the four axioms, we have described a solution different from Nash’s that satisfies the remaining three axioms. Some of these solutions have interesting axiomatizations. Say that a bargaining solution f satisfies strong individual rationality (SIR) if f (S, d) > d for every bargaining problem S, d .
