The Race for the GOP Nomination

Conquest of the Empire
Choosing the Right Move

From the Game Theory in the Wild files comes this piece on the Colbert Report spotted by your colleague Dave Lewis. The piece is about the book The Dictator's Handbook, written by the NYU game theorist Bruce Bueno de Mesquita. The piece talks about how the professor uses game theory in a computer model to predict geopolitical events. Here's a useful tool for applying these ideas: The Predictioneer's Game.

Key highlight from the interview: A prediction on the GOP nomination. Enjoy!
