In everyday language, life is often said to be “just like a game”. When a football match ends, it is “game over”. In economics, we have various versions of the “Prisoners’ Dilemma” game. Moreover, the award-winning movie “A Beautiful Mind” depicts the story of John Nash, the first Nobel Laureate who is accredited to spearheading the theory.

Session Two - Competition, Cooperation, and Rational Choice
In this mini series, we will cover:
2.1. A brief introduction of two main classes of games, non-cooperative and cooperative games.
2.2. A market with two players will be used to illustrate non-cooperative games and the concept of Nash equilibrium.
2.3. The Paris Agreement and China's Belt and Road Initiative will be used to illustrate how concepts of cooperative games can be applied in real-life. Shapley value as a solution concept will be introduced.
