Israel's Conflict as Game Theory


By Prof. Yisrael Aumann - Nobel Prize Laureate

October 23rd, 2010


Two men - let us call them Rick and Steve - are put in a small room containing a suitcase filled with bills totaling $100,000. The owner of the suitcase announces the following: "I will give you the money in the suitcase under one condition...you have to negotiate an agreement on how to divide it. That is the only way I will agree to give you the money."


Rick is a rational person and realizes the golden opportunity that has fallen his way. He turns to Steve with the obvious suggestion: "You take half and I'll take half, that way each of us will have $50,000."


To his surprise, Steve frowns at him and says, in a tone that leaves no room for doubt: "Look here, I don't know what your plans are for the money, but I don't intend to leave this room with less than $90,000. If you accept that, fine. If not, we can both go home without any of the money."            Read the whole article
