Discussion A-Sequential-Move Game Strategy
In the text, we consider a sequential-move game in which an entrant was considering entering an industry in competition with an incumbent firm (See Figure 15-1). Consider now that the entrant, if fought, has the possibility of withdrawing from the industry (at a loss of 1 for the entrant and a gain of 8 for the incumbent), or staying at a loss of 5 for each player). What is the equilibrium of this game? Discuss if the entrant is better off with or without the ability to withdraw. I have added a diagram of the game to help you see the options. See Diagram attached.
Discussion B-Type I and II Decision Error Costs
The HR department is trying to fill a vacant position for a job with a small talent pool.

For each applicant, the HR manager gathers information by trying to verify various claims on resumes, but some doubt about fit always lingers when a decision to hire or not to hire is made.
