Two Examples of Equilibrium Nonexistence

Julian C. Jamison


We present two simple situations in which SPE or NE fail to exist, even though intuition and the motivations for the definitions strongly suggest that they ought to. That is, nonexistence is due merely to technical barriers rather than fundamental barriers inherent in the structure of the situations (as occurs e.g. with auctions). Possibly resolutions are discussed.
