Devouring Game Theory (or Just Hallucinating?)

19 February 2009

WARNING:  Readers not into game theory, ecology, economics, or academic reading may safely skip this arcane post.

The question that just arose for me is, “if we threw Adam Smith (The Wealth of Nations), Thomas Malthus (resource/population ecologist), and J. F. Nash (game theorist and subject of “A Beautiful Mind”) into a smoke-filled room equipped with perfect, multilateral, mind-reading equipment, and locked the door until they figured it out, would Charles Murray (The Bell Curve) come walking out?”

Laughing the night away,
