Economics 406:01 RUTGERS UNIVERSITY Professor Campbell Fall 2011 Department of Economics Office: 302 New Jersey Hall 1:10-2:30 TTh campbell@econ.rutgers.edu GAME THEORY AND ECONOMICS Course Description: This upper-level elective course provides an introduction to game theory and its uses in economics. Game theory is a way of modeling interactions between people or institutions. In the games we study in economics, the “players” might be consumers, Frms, workers, the government, or voters, for instance. We will learn general methods for making predictions about how games will be played, and apply them to economic games in which we are interested. Summary of Learning Outcomes: Students who satisfactorily complete Game Theory and Eco- nomics will understand and be able to discuss the fundamental formal elements of game theory, as well as numerous economic problems to which game theory has been applied. Their general understanding will also permit them to consider applications that they might encounter in other disciplines (such as political science), or that occur to them when considering economic current events.
