You may have noticed the discussion in Taylor (2014) at the end of Chapter 10 about oligopoly and the prisoner’s dilemma. The prisoner’s dilemma is an example of game theory.

The same holds in oligopoly, as your own decisions as to what price to charge or how much to produce depend on what your competitors do.
