Bargaining

Bargaining is the process of two (or more) parties attempting to agree on the price for a transaction. Game theoretic approaches attempt to find two strategies from which neither party is motivated to deviate. These strategies are said to be in equilibrium with one another. The equilibriums available in bargaining depend on the the transaction mechanism and the information of the parties. Discounting (how long parties are willing to wait) has a significant effect in this process. This episode discusses some of the choices Kyle and Linh Da made in deciding what offer to make on a house.
