Strategic Foundations of General Equilibrium
by Douglas Gale
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2000
Number of pages: 232
This book reports on a major research program to provide strategic foundations for the theory of competition. Making use of insights from game theory, search theory and bargaining theory, the author develops a model to explain what actually goes on in markets and how a competitive general equilibrium is achieved. Essential reading for graduate courses in game theory and general equilibrium.

Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. This text demonstrates the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata.
