Social Attributes and Strategic Equilibrium: A Restaurant Pricing Game
Using a game-theoretic approach, the authors examine possible equilibrium explanations of the often-observed phenomenon that two neighboring restaurants offering similar menus nevertheless experience vastly different demands. The essential aspect of this analysis is the presence of a consumption externality that makes the popularity itself a factor in the determination of the relative attractiveness of the restaurants.
