Court cases are not discussed in this book, since they are analyzed in a large number of law-and-economics textbooks, for example Asch 1983, Gellhorn 1986, and Posner 1977. 1 The development of the antitrust legal system It is not surprising that when the Sherman Antitrust Act was passed in 1890, economists were almost unanimously opposed to it, on the basis that "trust busting" would involve a loss of the efficiency advantages of combinations or trusts (West 1987). Interestingly, after a decade of strict enforcement of the older merger's guidelines issued by the Federal Trade Commission, the newer 1984 guidelines have brought back the efficiency argument as an argument for merger in medium concentrated industries.

1: The pilot and the terrorist terrorist. The game is represented by a tree, with a starting decision node (point I), other decision nodes (IIN and IIC), and terminal nodes (end points). Note that in some literature, the term vertex (vertices) is used in place of the term node(s). The branches connecting decision nodes, and decision nodes to terminal nodes describe actions available to the relevant player on a particular decision node. In this Pilot-Terrorist game, after hearing the terrorist's threat, the pilot gets to be the player to choose an action at the starting node.

Since a SPE is also a NE for the original game, it is sufficient to look at the three NE outcomes of the original game given by (NY, (B, NB)), (Cuba, (NB, B)) and (NY, (NB, NB)). Next, each proper subgame has only one NE, namely, the terrorist chooses NB. Hence, given that a SPE outcome must be a NE for every subgame, we conclude that the outcomes (NY, (B, NB)), (Cuba, (NB, B)) are not SPE. Finally, the outcome (NY, (NB, NB)) is a SPE since it is a NE for the original game, and the outcome (action) NB is a unique NE for every proper subgame.
