Game Theory 101: Bargaining

Game Theory 101: Bargaining

Tomorrow, you will go to your boss and ask for a raise. You need at least $20 per hour to stay; your boss is unwilling to pay you any more than $50. You should reach an agreement—but will the wage be closer to $20 or $50? This is the essence of bargaining. Using the same crystal clear logic of the Game Theory 101 series, William Spaniel explains the sources of “bargaining power”—the strength that allows you to successfully demand wages closer to $50. In doing so, he uncovers the bargaining in everything, including car negotiations, Breaking Bad, Deal or No Deal, McDonald’s Monopoly, sports free agency, cable companies, security deposits, war, diamond manufacturing, labor unions, government shutdowns, nuclear showdowns, price fixing, unemployment benefits, legal battles, and police pullovers. With bargaining so pervasive, this is one book you can’t afford not to have.

The Art of Strategy: A Game Theorist's Guide to Success in Business and Life

The Art of Strategy: A Game Theorist's Guide to Success in Business and Life

“I am hard pressed to think of another book that can match the combination of practical insights and reading enjoyment.”—Steven LevittGame theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It’s the art of anticipating your opponent’s next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing to you. Though parts of game theory involve simple common sense, much is counterintuitive, and it can only be mastered by developing a new way of seeing the world. Using a diverse array of rich case studies—from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history—the authors show how nearly every business and personal interaction has a game-theory component to it. Mastering game theory will make you more successful in business and life, and this lively book is the key to that mastery.

Game Theory 101: The Rationality of War

Game Theory 101: The Rationality of War

William Spaniel, author of Game Theory 101: The Complete Textbook, returns with a compelling exploration of the origins of war. Using the same crystal clear logic of the Game Theory 101 series, he investigates important questions about war, including: Can two perfectly intelligent, perfectly unbiased leaders still send their countries to war with each other? Why has Iran taken its nuclear program underground (literally)? Why did the United States--the clear victors of the Spanish-American War--nevertheless write a check for more than $500 million to make Spain surrender? Why do most interstate wars end in peaceful compromise and not the military defeat of one side? Why do virtually all civil wars end the opposite way, and what makes the few peacefully settled civil wars different from the rest? How do nuclear weapons--humanity's deadliest creations--paradoxically keep the peace? Why is war the worst possible outcome of a crisis negotiation? What is the difference between preventive and preemptive war, and why on earth does the media use these terms interchangeably? Why are states as trustworthy as poker players at the bargaining table? Why do states willingly pick fights with stronger opponents and yet pacify weaker opponents? William Spaniel answers these questions by constructi...

Game Theory 101: The Murder of Kitty Genovese

Game Theory 101: The Murder of Kitty Genovese

New York City. 1964. Winter. 3 am. Twenty-eight year old Kitty Genovese was wrapping up a late night shift as a bar manager. She got into her car and headed back to her apartment.Kitty never made it back. After she parked her car, a stranger named Winston Moseley stabbed her as she approached the building. Kitty yelled for help. Mosley ran off.No one came to her rescue. Bleeding out, Kitty crawled into a hallway, but a locked door prevented her from advancing any further. Mosley eventually returned, stabbed her, and raped her before finally fleeing the scene for good. Almost an hour later, an ambulance finally arrived, but Kitty died before reaching the hospital.Days later, a New York Times reporter discovered that many witnesses saw the murder but did not call the police. Psychology textbooks blame this on the "bystander effect" and situational paralysis. But in this Game Theory 101 parable, William Spaniel shows how nice people rationally do not call the police on occasion. The witnesses, caught in coordination problem, ignore the situation because they believe someone else will make the phone call for them.The Murder of Kitty Genovese shows how the coordination problem works from a game theoretical perspective. It also proves that the police are less likely to receive a phone ...
