Problem Set #1
Your family business produces a secret recipe salsa and distributes it through both smaller specialty stores and chain supermarkets. The chains have been demanding sizable discounts but you do not want to drop your prices to the specialty stores. When can you legally accommodate the chains without losing profits from the specialty stores?
Problem Set #2
Describe some interaction your company has with another entity (firms producing complementary or substitute products, upstream suppliers, or downstream customers), or between internal divisions within your firm that can be described as a sequential or simultaneous game. Diagram the strategies, players, and compute payoffs as best you can. Compute the Nash equilibria. What can you do to change the rules of the game to your advantage? Compute the profit consequences of your advice.
