A New Approach to Solving Production-Appropriation Games with Many Heterogeneous Players

Richard Cornes, Roger Hartley and Yuji Tamura

No 3060, CESifo Working Paper Series from CESifo Group Munich

Abstract: We set out a model of production and appropriation involving many players, who differ with respect to both resource endowments and productivities. We write down the model in a novel way that permits our analysis to avoid the proliferation of dimensions associated with the best response function approach as the number of heterogeneous players increases. We establish existence of a unique equilibrium in pure strategies, and carry out some comparative static exercises.
