My Panel at SELE (2010)

My paper (with Peter Grossman) on why the game-theoretic treatment of Garrett Hardin's "tragedy of the commons" (the Herder Problem) is wrong, and how it might be improved, was well received. Paul Rubin, the commentator, called it a "nice paper" (high praise indeed).

The other paper on the panel was by Dan Kelly (Notre Dame) on "Strategic Spillovers." It's a very interesting paper on strategic decisions to create, or threaten to create, negative externalities that would not otherwise be created but for institutional mechanisms that provide possible pay-offs to avoid them.
