Otherwise, each gets $0. How likely do you think it is that the two will win the $100? What do you think will be the two lists? 9 The list with Moscow will normally include Berlin, Budapest, Prague, and Warsaw, and the list with 41 Washington will have Bonn, London, and Paris. The rule of division is evident; capitals Warsaw Pact countries vs. those of NATO countries (abusing, for the moment, French sensibilities). Berlin might give one pause, but the presence of Bonn on the list is something of a give-away, and, well, it just seems fairly clear.

25. 25 and a constant marginal cost of 1 per unit. The standard theory of monopoly would proceed as follows. 75. 75, with the following explanation: 51 This monopolist is faced with the threat of entry by some second firm, known as the entrant (he). This entrant is as capable a manufacturer as the monopolist; he possesses exactly the same production function as does the monopolist. And he will enter the industry if he believes that he can make a strictly positive profit by doing so. Suppose that the monopolist is producing x*=6 units, and the potential entrant believes that if he enters, the monopolist will go on making 6 units.

This monopolist faces a downward-sloping demand curve. For simplicity, we imagine that if the monopolist sets price p, then the quantity demanded x is given by x=13−p. 25. 25 and a constant marginal cost of 1 per unit.
