Game Theory Models for Organizational/Public Conflict

Priscilla Murphy

Abstract


Abstract:
This paper applies game theory to conflicts between organizations and publics. Non-cooperative games--the duel (Chernobyl), the game of
tag (Ford Pinto), and the escalation game (A. H. Robins' Dalkon Shield)--are contrasted with a cooperative bargaining game between an
organization and its publics (Procter & Gamble's Rely tampon recall).


Résumé:
Cette étude applique la Théorie des jeux aux situations de conflits ou de crises entre des organisations et des parties du public. Modèles noncoopératifs--le duel (Chernobyl), le jeu de recherche
et poursuite (Ford Pinto), et le jeu d'escalade (le Dalkon Shield de
A. H. Robins)--sont contrastés avec un jeu coopératif de négociation entre une organisation et sa clientèle (le retrait du Rely tampon de
Procter & Gamble).
