Austrian Economics and Game Theory: A Stocktaking and an Evaluation

Author

  • Foss, Nicolai

Abstract

I discuss the merits and drawbacks of game theory in economics from the perspective of Austrian economics. I begin by arguing that Austrians have neglected game theory at their peril, and then suggest that game theoretic reasoning could be one way of modelling key Austrian insights. However, admittedly some aspects of game theory don't square easily with Austrian economics. Moreover, a major stumbling block for an Austrian acceptance of game theory may lie in the traditional Austrian resistance to formal methods. Copyright 2000 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
