Ariel Rubinstein 

       Ariel Rubinstein is a professor of economics at the School of Economics at Tel Aviv University and the Department of Economics at New York University. He studied mathematics and economics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, 1972–1979 (B.Sc. Mathematics, Economics and Statistics, 1974; M.A. Economics, 1975; M.Sc Mathematics, 1976; Ph.D. Economics, 1979).

       In 1982, he published "Perfect equilibrium in a bargaining model", an important contribution to the theory of bargaining. The model is known also as a Rubinstein bargaining model. It describes two-person bargaining as an extensive game with perfect information in which the players alternate offers. A key assumption is that the players are impatient. The main result gives conditions under which the game has a unique sub-game perfect equilibrium and characterizes this equilibrium. He also co-wrote A Course in Game Theory (1994) with Martin J. Osborne, a textbook that has been cited in excess of 5,300 times as of March 2014.

 

  

 

 


 

Ying Chen 

       Research interests are in game theory, information economics and political economy, and she is particularly interested in strategic communication and dynamic bargaining. One of her recent papers models rhetoric in legislative bargaining as “cheap talk” and investigates the extent to which such communication can convey private information about legislators’ preferences and how it affects the bargaining outcome. Another recent paper discusses the optimal way to present arguments in debates in order to persuade the audience. One of her current projects aims to understand how dynamic concerns affect agenda setting when multiple issues need to be addressed and time is limited. She is also working on a series of papers that explore the efficiency implications of different budgetary institutions using game-theoretical models of dynamic bargaining.
