illustrates the payoffs in a general, two-person,
collective-action game. There we showed various inequalities on the algebraic
payoffs [p(1), etc.] that made the game a prisoners’ dilemma. Now you are asked
to find similar inequalities corresponding to other kinds of games:
(a) Under what condition(s) on the payoffs is the
two-person game a chicken game? What further condition(s) make the game version
I of chicken (as in Figure 11.3)?
(b) Under what condition(s) on the payoffs is the
two-person game an assurance game?
