Cooperative Games in Strategic Form
AbstractIn this paper we view bargaining and cooperation as an interaction superimposed on a strategic form game. A multistage bargaining procedure for N players, the â€œproposer commitmentâ€ procedure, is presented. It is inspired by Nashâ€™s two-player variable-threat model; a key feature is the commitment to â€œthreats.â€ We establish links to classical cooperative game theory solutions, such as the Shapley value in the transferable utility case. However, we show that even in standard pure exchange economies the traditional coalitional function may not be adequate when utilities are not transferable.
