MIXED STRATEGIES IN THE MUGGING GAME

Robert Hoffmann ()

Rationality and Society, 2001, vol. 13, issue 2, 205-212

Abstract: This note is a contribution to the debate on Steven Brams's Theory of Moves. In particular, it aims to show that standard game-theoretic concepts can both account for and explain the statistics concerning mugging incidents that Brams presents to support the better predictive power of his own theory.
