17. Jaynet spends $40,000 per year on painting supplies and storage space.  She recently received two job offers from a famous marketing firm – one offer was for $115,000 per year, and the other was for $85,000.  However, she turned both jobs down to continue a painting career.

20, 110

60, 60

a. Identify the one-shot Nash equilibrium.

b. Suppose the players know this game will be repeated exactly three times. Can they achieve payoffs that are better than the one-shot Nash equilibrium?

c. Suppose this game is infinitely repeated and the interest rate is 5 percent. Can the players achieve payoffs that are better than the one-shot Nash equilibrium?

d. Suppose the players do not know exactly how many times this game will be repeated, but they do know that the probability the game will end after a given play is θ. If θ is sufficiently low, can players earn more than they could in the one-shot Nash equilibrium?



A risk-neutral consumer is deciding whether to purchase a homogeneous product from one of two firms. One firm produces an unreliable product and the other a reliable product. At the time of the sale, the consumer is unable to distinguish between the two firms’ products. From the consumer’s perspective, there is an equal chance that a given firm’s product is reliable or unreliable. The maximum amount this consumer will pay for an unreliable product is $0, while she will pay $210 for a reliable product.



Given this uncertainty, what is the most this consumer will pay to purchase one unit of this product?



How much will this consumer be willing to pay for the product if the firm offering the reliable product includes a warranty that will protect the consumer?
