Assignment Models and Reneging

Posted: 11 Apr 2000


We consider a non-cooperative assignment model where we show that any subgame perfect equilibrium is stable, and that an appropriate refinement criterion leads to the p-optimal outcome. We then consider a model with reneging and derive some interesting properties of this game. We show that in this case 'unraveling' may occur. Furthermore, the resulting outcome can be either stable, or unstable.
