Asian Security Seminar - The Economic-Security Nexus and East Asian Regionalism
East Asia is becoming more regionalized. But it is doing so in fits and starts: two steps forward and one step back. At present, few Asian governments are bonded through an overarching regional vision; many are highly distrustful of one another; and the region evinces little of the sustained political leadership and conviction necessary to create the robust institutions that might deepen and regularize state-to-state cooperation across a range of complex issues. Yet even with its many halts and
Why the North Korean nuclear issue is not going to be solved
The recent 15-odd years have seen alternating waves of optimism and despair in regard to the North Korean nuclear issue. Alas, the optimists have been proven wrong many times, and this likely to remain the case. The 'North Korean nuclear issue' should not be treated as if it is separate. Actually, it is a part of a larger 'North Korean issue'. Pyongyang's decision to go nuclear was driven, above all, by the peculiarities of the North Korean domestic situation. The outside world has no efficient
An App A Day: Tasty Apps for iPhone and Android - February 24, 2010
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Smartphones are the new platform, and apps are the core.

21 - Repeated games: cooperation vs. the end game
We discuss repeated games, aiming to unpack the intuition that the promise of rewards and the threat of punishment in the future of a relationship can provide incentives for good behavior today. In class, we play prisoners' dilemma twice and three times, but this fails to sustain cooperation. The problem is that, in the last stage, since there is then is future, there is no incentive to cooperate, and hence the incentives unravel from the back. We related this to the real-world problems of a lam
19 - Subgame perfect equilibrium: matchmaking and strategic investments
We analyze three games using our new solution concept, subgame perfect equilibrium (SPE). The first game involves players' trusting that others will not make mistakes. It has three Nash equilibria but only one is consistent with backward induction. We show the other two Nash equilibria are not subgame perfect: each fails to induce Nash in a subgame. The second game involves a matchmaker sending a couple on a date. There are three Nash equilibria in the dating subgame. We construct three correspo
Remix: Making art and commerce thrive in the hybrid economy
For more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war on our kids in the name of the 20th Century’s model of “copyright law.” In this, the last of his books about copyright, Lawrence Lessig maps both a way back to the 19th century, and to the promise of the 21st. Our past teaches us about the value in “remix.” We need to relearn the lesson. The present teaches us about the potential in a new “hybrid economy” — one where commercial entities leverage value from sharing economies. That
