Popis: This course introduces into non-cooperative game theory (primarily into games with complete information) in the context of economic policy-making. It shows that economic policies, including budgeting, structural reforms, industry regulations, state aid, and decisions in financial and monetary committees are subject to a rigorous game-theoretical analysis.

The course targets three audiences:

1) Economists who want to understand and model how competing players (firms, interest groups, individual politicians and political parties) strategically shape economic policies.
2) Students of various fields who are interested in an introduction into game theory, and expect to use game-theoretical tools in various economic and political contexts.
3) Those familiar with basic tools from non-cooperative game theory who seek applications focused on collective decision-making, including decision-making in corporations.
