Be Game

It was almost an year ago when I wrote this post on Game Theory. The topic came back to my mind this morning when I read the news of the year's Nobel Prize in Economics. The Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences goes to Aumann and Schelling for "having enhanced our understanding of conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis".

I guess this is for the second time, after mathematician John Nash, that the Nobel Prize is being awarded for unparalleled work in economics based on Game Theory. Going forward, it could be a nice avenue to look for a prize (or a prize or two?).

Game, anyone?
