(Answerthis question from the aspects of incentive mechanism and price discrimination)5. You and aclassmate are assigned as study partners. The following matrix shows thepayoffs from shirking and working. If you both work hard, you both receive agrade of A. If one of you shirks, bothof you will receive a grade of B and the shirker will receive happiness fromleisure. If both of you shirk, you both receive a grade of C and happiness fromleisure. YouShirkWorkClassmateShirkC+Leisure , C+LeisureB+Leisure , BWork B , B+Leisure A , ASupposeboth students rank the outcomes as follows: (1)A grade of B and leisure is better than (2)A grade of A and no leisure, which is better than (3)A grade of C and leisure, which is better than (4)A grade of B and hard work. a. Assign “numbers” to this payoff matrix and make(shirk, shirk) the Nash equilibrium.b. Suppose you and your classmate aim to achieve academicexcellence (earning a grade of A). Provide solutions to get out of the“prisoner’s dilemma”.Supposeboth students rank the outcomes as follows. Now it becomes a game ofchicken with two equilibria.(1)A grade of B and leisure is better than (2)A grade of A and no leisure which is better than (3)A grade of B and hard work which is better than(4)A grade of C and leisure.c. Assign “numbers” to this payoff matrix. What are the Nashequilibria?d. Provide solution(s) to change the game to youradvantage (improve your payoff from the game).6.Choose any of your favorite movies or cartoons that illustrate the followingeconomic concepts. Fixed(Sunk) cost Fallacy, Hidden cost Fallacy, Economies of scale and scope, Supplyand demand, Elasticity, Pricing commonly own products (substitutes orcomplements), Direct price discrimination, Indirect price discrimination, Strategicgames, Adverse selection, Moral hazard. a.
