Title

Product Differentiation: Applying Game Theory to Politics by Logan Soich

Subject

Economics

Description

In this paper, I discuss how product differentiation models from game theory can be applied to the political arena. The paper briefly reviews partisan politics in the United States and then discusses product differentiation and the “linear city” product differentiation model. I then create a game to model the current Congress. The solved version of the game yields a prediction for the actions of the Republican-controlled Congress and President Obama.
