During the last 10 to 15 years, one of the major foundational developments in game theory, decision theory, and economic theory has been modeling asymmetric unawareness. Decision makers may not just lack information in a standard sense but may also not conceive of some relevant aspects of decision problems. The B.E. Journal of Theoretical Economics is inviting […]
Martin Shubik, he of the Shapley-Shubik assignment game, and the Shapley-Shubik power index passed away on Wednesday August 24, 2018. As he passed into the `seventh age’ of man he suffered a progressive muscle disorder characterized by muscle inflammation, weakness, and atrophy (wasting). Born in England, he was the middle of three remarkable children. His […]

The 6th World Congress of the Game Theory Society will be held in Budapest, Hungary, July 13-17, 2020. Both von Neumann and Harsanyi were born in this city. By coincidence, the Congress will take place on the centennial of Harsanyi’s birth. More details will appear closer to the date of the Congress.
David M. Kreps, Paul Milgrom and Robert Wilson, familiar names to members of the Society, were awarded the US National Academy of Sciences John J. Carty award for the advancement of science. The citation reads, in part: Kreps and Wilson provided a framework, known as sequential equilibrium, for modeling dynamic effects in economics. All three […]
