Xt ) = Y N if xt1 ≥ y1∗ if xt1 < y1∗ 46 Chapter 3. 3 The unique subgame perfect equilibrium of a bargaining game of alternating offers in which the players’ preferences satisfy A1 through A6. 3). if t is odd. The strategy τ ∗ of Player 2 has the same structure; the roles of x∗ and y ∗ are reversed, the words “odd” and “even” are interchanged, and each subscript 1 is replaced by 2. 3 describes the strategies σ ∗ and τ ∗ as automata. Note the we have not assumed that the strategies are stationary; we have allowed actions in any period to depend on the entire history of the game.

H u2 (1 − z) ...... ...... ....... ......... ............. .......... ....... .... ..... 3 Comparative statics of the Nash solution for the problem of dividing a dollar. If the utility functions of the players are ui (i = 1,2) then Player 1 receives zu units of the dollar in the Nash solution. If Player 2 has the utility function v2 = h ◦ u2 , where h is increasing and concave (so that Player 2 is more risk-averse), while Player 1 retains the utility function u1 , then Player 1 receives zv in the Nash solution.

The strategy τ calls for Player 2 to reject any offer less favorable to him than x. However, if Player 2 is actually confronted with such an offer, then, under the assumption that Player 1 will otherwise follow the strategy σ, it may be in Player 2’s interest to accept the offer rather than reject it. Suppose that x1 < 1 and that Player 1 makes an offer x in which x1 = x1 + in period t, where > 0 is small. If Player 2 accepts this offer he receives x2 − in period t, while if he rejects it, then, according to the strategy pair (σ, τ ), he offers x in period t + 1, which Player 1 accepts, so that the outcome is (x, t + 1).
