Example text

In short, the strategy pair (AT,B T) is 'rational' for the individuals qua individuals, while the pair (AN,BN) is 'rational' for the group of individuals. What is 'best' for the individual is not necessarily what is 'best' for all individuals as a collective entity - the pursuit of individual advantage leads to a socially undesirable outcome. 3 RESOLVING THE DILEMMA Many psychological studies have indicated that the Prisoners' Dilemma game, if played several times, leads to a determinate equilibrium which is likely to be 'group rational' [49].

Condition (a) is sometimes called 'group rationality', while (b) is called 'individual rationality' . 5 SOLUTION CONCEPTS An outcome of an N-person co-operative game has thus been identified as an imputation. Are there any imputations which are 'best' in the equilibrium sense? - that is, imputations that, once agreed on by the players, will not be broken. Consider the imputations x = (0'50,0'50,0) in the divide-the-dollar game. We saw that the imputationy = (0,0'60,0'40) could 'break' (or block, or dominate) the imputation x in the sense that a coalition could form (namely {B,G}) and by their own actions do better than x.

However, the clearest starting place is with the individual act of exchange, or barter, for-if the general equilibrium problem can be posed and studied for a world without production, money, or durable goods then extensions of the theory could perhaps elucidate phenomena in the real world of economic fact. 1 THE EDGEWORTH PROBLEM Consider a world of two individuals, each endowed with a stock of a single commodity. As per tradition, let them be called Robinson (R) and Friday (F), and let R have wheat and F have fish.
