    Abstract

    A game theoretic approach for formulating simultaneous equations models for dummy endogenous variables is proposed and applied to a study of husband/wife labor force participation. A distinctive feature of our approach is that the simultaneous model is derived from optimizing behavior as an outcome of a game between two players. The equilibrium concept used is that of Nash. In addition, we show that the logical consistency conditions implied by usual simultaneous equation models with structural shift actually rules out simultaneity for the problem we consider; in our model, no logical consistency conditions are implied on the parameters. Les auteurs proposent une méthode inspirée par la théorie des jeux pour formuler des modèles d’équations simultanées et les appliquer à l’étude de la décision de deux personnes mariées de participer ou pas au marché du travail. Leur démarche se distingue par le fait que le modèle simultané utilise le résultat d’un jeu entre deux joueurs pour obtenir le comportement d’optimisation. Le concept d’équilibre retenu est celui de Nash. Par ailleurs, les auteurs démontrent que les conditions de cohérence logique, sont implicites dans les modèles d’équations simultanées avec glissement structurel, interdiraient en fait la simultanéité dans la modélisation du problème qu’ils considèrent. Par conséquent, leur modèle ne suppose aucune condition de cohérence logique dans les paramètres.
