Provides an exposition of orthodox decision theory and presents a critique of the thick veils of ignorance proposed by Harsanyi and Rawls. In contrast, suggests a thin veil of ignorance in which persons are not called upon to forget the way society is currently organised or their empathetic preferences, which are shaped by social evolution in the medium run. The second volume of Game Theory and the Social Contract will address the problem of bargaining behind the veil of ignorance.]

["There exists an important and troublesome tension within the Bayesian approach to game theory and economics. From the point of view of their decision-theoretic foundation ... probabilities are subjective, representing personal judgements on the comparative likelihood of events revealed in an agent's preferences over bets or "acts". Personal probability judgments admit two types of determinants, objective and subjective; call them "experience" and "mind-set". On the other hand, in game-theoretic and economic applications, with few exceptions, only the first type of determinant is allowed to matter. Thus, differences of beliefs are attributed entirely to differences in experience ("Harsanyi Doctrine"); correspondingly, agents are assumed to be "like minded". Following Harsanyi ... "like-mindedness" is commonly formalised by assuming agents' beliefs to be posteriors derived from a commonly known common prior."]

[Biologists and economists have analyzed populations where each individual interacts with randomly selected individuals. The random matching generates a very complicated stochastic system. Consequently evolutionary biologists have approximated such a system by a deterministic system. The justification of such an approximation is that the population is assumed to be very large and thus some law of large numbers must hold. In this paper we give an example for which this assumption does not hold. We then show that if we assume that the population is infinite then the stochastic and the deterministic system are the same. Finally, we show that if the process lasts finitely many periods and if the population is large enough then the deterministic model offers a good approximation of the stochastic model. In doing so we make precise what we mean by population, matching process, and evolution of the population.]

[The debate between neo-liberals and realists in the field of international relations draws heavily on the findings offered in Robert Axelrod's Evolution of Co-operation. Axelrod's well-known argument is that co-operation can emerge among egoists despite the absence of a central authority. This article assesses the robustness of Axelrod's findings in light of the realist critique that relative gains concerns make co-operation less likely than neo-liberals contend. We build on an amended prisoner's dilemma (PD) game and conduct a computer simulation tournament in which we vary (1) the payoff structure and (2) Axelrod's population of strategies. The results indicate that co-operation can emerge even under strong relative gains concerns, so long as the population of strategies is sufficiently retaliatory. On the basis of this finding, we argue that the realist critique is overstated: the introduction of greater relative gains concerns does not necessarily limit the prospects for co-operation among states.]

Matsui, Akihiko (1993) 'Evolution and Rationalizability', Working Paper: 93-19, Center for Analytic Research in Economics and the Social Sciences (CARESS), University of Pennsylvania, May. [This paper synthesises two ideas, evolution and rationalisability, in a dynamic environment. Both have drawn theorists' attentions to either justify or criticise equilibrium theory, which requires the co-ordination of beliefs and actions among players. A drawback of rationalisability is its poor predictive power while that of evolution is lack of rationality in the decision making process. We show that the integration of these two ideas will be free of their respective drawbacks. We attempt to do this in a dynamic environment in which players are anonymous. A player's payoff depends only on his choice of action and the distribution of strategies in a society. A rationalisable foresight path is a path along which each player makes a rationalisable decision. We define social stability by making use of rationalisable foresight paths. A state is socially stable under rationalisable foresight if there exists no rationalizable foresight path that escapes from that state. We also define socially stable states under perfect foresight as the states from which no perfect foresight paths escape and show that social stability under rationalisable foresight sometimes makes sharper prediction than that under perfect foresight. Application to location theory is provided to show the usefulness of the stability captured by the concept of rationalizable foresight.]

[Individuals in a finite population repeatedly choose among actions yielding uncertain payoffs. Between choices, each individual observes the action and realised outcome of one other individual. We restrict our search to learning rules with limited memory that increase expected payoffs regardless of the distribution underlying their realisations. It is shown that the rule that outperforms all others is that which imitates the action of an observed individual (whose realised outcome is better than self) with a probability proportional to the difference in these realisations. When each individual uses this best rule the aggregate population behaviour is approximated by the replicator dynamic.] [schlag_96.pdf] [*0]

[This paper examines interaction in the absence of property rights when agents face a trade-off between productive and coercive activities. In this setting, conflict is not the necessary outcome of one-time interaction and co-operation is consistent with domination of one agent over another. Other things being equal, an agent's power, a well-defined concept in this paper, is inversely related to an agent's resources when resources are valued according to marginal-productivity theory. Some implications for the evolution of property rights are drawn. The model is applicable to a variety of situations in which directly unproductive activities are prevalent.]

[Bergin and Lipman (1996) show that the refinement effect from the random mutations in the adaptive dynamics in Kandori, Mailath and Rob (1993) and Young (1993) is due to restrictions on how these mutation rates vary across population states. We here model these mutation rates as endogenously determined mistake probabilities, by assuming that players at some cost or disutility can control their mistake probability: the probability of implementing another pure strategy than intended. This is shown to corroborate the result in Kandori-Mailath-Rob and Young that the risk-dominant equilibrium is selected in 2 x 2-coordination games.] [D POSTSCRIPT] [D PDF]
