Co-opetition by Adam Brandenburger( Book )

43 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though often compared to games like chess and poker, business is different. To win at chess or poker, someone has to lose. In business, long-term profitability doesn't require others to fail. And in business, people are free to change the rules, the players, the boundaries, the game itself. Intel, Nintendo, American Express, NutraSweet, American Airlines and dozens of other companies have been using the strategies of co-opetition not only to win but to make it possible for their industry as a whole to grow. By telling stories of these companies, and formulating strategies based on the science of game theory, Brandenburger and Nalebuff have created a book that's insightful and instructive for managers eager to move their companies into a new mindset

Lifecycle investing : a new, safe, and audacious way to improve the performance of your retirement portfolio by Ian Ayres( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diversification provides a well-known way of getting something close to a free lunch: by spreading money across different kinds of investments, investors can earn the same return with lower risk (or a much higher return for the same amount of risk). This strategy, introduced nearly fifty years ago, led to such strategies as index funds. In this book, economists Barry Nalebuff and Ian Ayres explain tools that will allow nearly any investor to diversify their portfolios over time. Readers will learn: how to figure out the level of exposure and leverage that's right for them; how the Lifecycle Investing strategy would have performed in the historical market; why it will work even if everyone does it; and when not to adopt the Lifecycle Investing strategy.--From publisher description

Coopetition: kooperativ konkurrieren : mit der Spieltheorie zum Geschäftserfolg by Adam Brandenburger( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in German and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coopetition ist eine Anwendung spieltheoretischen Denkens im Geschäftsleben. Es ist eine Methode herauszufinden, wo Ihre Konkurrenz in Wahrheit Ihr Kooperationspartner ist. Unternehmen brauchen sich nicht darauf zu beschränken, ein vorgefundenes Spiel zu spielen, sondern sie können das Spiel aktiv gestalten und damit das klassische Denken in Gewinnern und Verlierern überwinden. Sie können sogar von ihren Konkurrenten profitieren - wenn sie erkennen, wie sie zu Komplementären werden: Sie bleiben Konkurren-ten, wenn Sie einen gegebenen Markt aufteilen; aber sie kooperieren, wenn Sie diesen Markt ändern. Das Konzept Coopetition bietet Ihnen einen strategischen Rahmen, mit dem Sie die He-bel erkennen und nutzen, die sich aus dem Zusammenspiel von Konkurrenz und Koope-ration ergeben. Die Autoren erklären auf spannende Weise diesen neuen Denkansatz und beschreiben, wie man seine Möglichkeiten in der Praxis nutzt. Die Erfolgsgeschichten von Intel, Nintendo, American Airlines und zahlreichen anderen Unternehmen waren die Vorlage und der Prüfstein für diese praktische Anwendung der Spieltheorie. (Quelle:
Equilibrium unemployment as a worker screening device by Barry Nalebuff( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present a model of the labor market with asymmetric information in which the equilibrium of the' market generates unemployment and job queues so that wages may serve as an effective screening device. This happens because more productive workers -- within any group of individuals with a given set of observable characteristics -- are more willing to accept the risk of being unemployed than less productive workers. The model is consistent with cyclical movements in average real wages as well as with differences in unemployment rates across different groups in the population. We also show that the market equilibrium is not, in general. constrained Pareto efficient Moreover. we identify a new category of nonexistence problems, different in several essential ways from those earlier discussed by Rothschild-Stiglitz [1976J and Wilson [1977]. We also extend the analysis to incorporate the possibility of renegotiation, showing that a separating-renegotiation-proof-equilibrium exists for certain parameters and that a renegotiation-proof equilibrium is always constrained Pareto efficient Finally, we present a version of the model in which firms enter sequentially, as in Guash and Weiss [1980]. But contrary to the main result in that paper, we show that there is no advantage of being late, provided workers have rational expectations

Life-cycle investing and leverage : buying stock on margin can reduce retirement risk by Ian Ayres( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By employing leverage to gain more exposure to stocks when young, individuals can achieve better diversification across time. Using stock data going back to 1871, we show that buying stock on margin when young combined with more conservative investments when older stochastically dominates standard investment strategies?both traditional life-cycle investments and 100%-stock investments. The expected retirement wealth is 90% higher compared to life-cycle funds and 19% higher compared to 100% stock investments. The expected gain would allow workers to retire almost six years earlier or extend their standard of living during retirement by 27 years
Pensions and the retirement decision by Barry Nalebuff( Book )

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pensions influence retirement decisions. The analysis provides a framework for assessing the phenomenon. The qualitative features of most defined benefit pension plans in the United States, as the first section demonstrates, can be used to induce optimal retirement choices. Pensions are viewed as a form of forced savings; their purposeis to enable the worker to "commit himself" by making it in his own self-interest to retire at an appropriate age. The remaining sections examine the use of pensions in populations that are heterogeneous with respect to such features as disutility of work or expected lifespan. Given heterogeneity, a major policy concern is whether pensions are actuarially fair to different groups, retirement cohorts, etc. It is proven that optimal pension plans cannot be actuarially more than fair, in the sense that someone who retires later must impose a smaller cost on the pension pool than he would were he to retire earlier. However, there are differences in life expectancy among cohorts defined by retirement age: late retirees generallyl ive longer. Late retirees may thus impose a greater expected cost on the pension fund under an optimal plan; interestingly, they do impose a higher cost than those retiring earlier under most common pension funds. In a first-best world, a separate pension plan would be designed for each group of workers. But, government-mandated retirement programs and legislation regulating private pensions require common treatment of different workers. Such homogenization is shown to work to the possible detriment of workers as a whole. Pensions are a workhorse compensation mechanism. They provide an additional instrument beyond wages for attracting, motivating, sorting, and retaining workers, while facilitating appropriate retirement decisions
