Crises Financières Turques dans un Monde Globalisé-Développement d’un Système d’Indicateurs d’Alerte

Le contexte de uniqueness instabilité financière globale des années 1990 et 2000 caractérisé par l. a. recrudescence des crises financières de caractère systémique et contagieux a suscité de nombreux débats sur les moyens susceptibles de prévenir de futures crises.

The transition rule is as follows. If the state is [S, i, x] and the action Player i takes is “reject”, then the new state is [S, i]; if the action is “accept”, then the new state is [x]. If the state is [S, i] and the action is the proposal x, then the new state is [S , j, x], where j is the other player and S is determined by the transition rule given in column S. Finally, if the state is [x] then it remains [x]. 6 Nash Equilibrium The following notion of equilibrium in a game is due to Nash (1950b, 1951).

2 The functions v1 (·, 1) and v2 (·, 1). The origin for the graph of v1 (·, 1) is the lower left corner of the box; the origin for the graph of v2 (·, 1) is the upper right corner. Under assumption A3 any given amount is worth less the later it is received. The final condition we impose on preferences is that the loss to delay associated with any given amount is an increasing function of the amount. A6 (Increasing loss to delay) The difference xi − vi (xi , 1) is an increasing function of xi .

Xt−1 ) ∈ X t if t is even, and σ ∗t (x0 , . . , xt ) = Y N if xt1 ≥ y1∗ if xt1 < y1∗ 46 Chapter 3. 3 The unique subgame perfect equilibrium of a bargaining game of alternating offers in which the players’ preferences satisfy A1 through A6. 3). if t is odd. The strategy τ ∗ of Player 2 has the same structure; the roles of x∗ and y ∗ are reversed, the words “odd” and “even” are interchanged, and each subscript 1 is replaced by 2. 3 describes the strategies σ ∗ and τ ∗ as automata. Note the we have not assumed that the strategies are stationary; we have allowed actions in any period to depend on the entire history of the game.
