Outlines the basic tools and concepts in game theory and explores its applicability to a wide variety of real business situations. Business decision-making is inherently strategic and game theory shows what outcomes occur when agents interact strategically with one another. Applications from auction theory, industrial organisation, labour and environmental economics and public policy are examined.
