Game Theory, Complexity and Simplicity. Part III: Critique and Prospective

Author

Abstract

A discussion of some of the problems in the utilization of game theoretic solution concepts is given. It is suggested that a considerable broadening of solution concepts is called for to take into account sufficient context. Mass agent simulations appear to offer promise for some economic and societal problems.
