Economics Amplified: When Game Theory Gets Complicated


Welcome to Economics Amplified, a podcast where we talk about insights on today’s biggest economic issues being tackled by researchers at UChicago’s Becker Friedman Institute.

In today’s episode we talk with Ben Brooks, a research fellow at the Becker Friedman Institute interested in how incomplete information complicates classical game theory.

This summer, Brooks organized a conference, bringing together experts in mathematical modeling, incomplete information and game theory. Researchers highlighted important developments in modeling information in auctions and continuous games, as well as the relationship between information and behavior in the era of the internet and big data.
