A Fictitious-Play Model of Bargaining To Implement the Nash Solution

  • Younghwan In

    (National University of Singapore)

Registered author(s):

    We present a fictitious-play model of bargaining, where two bargainers play the Nash demand game repeatedly. The bargainers make a deliberate decision on their demands in the initial period and then follow a fictitious play process subsequently. If the bargainers are patient, the set of epsilon -equilibria of the initial-demand game is in a neighborhood of the division corresponding to the Nash bargaining solution. As the bargainers make a more accurate comparison of payoffs and become more patient accordingly, the set of epsilon-equilibria shrinks and the only equilibrium left is the division of the Nash bargaining solution.
