The theory of repeated games and reputations provides a central underpinning
for economists’ understanding of social, political, and economic institutions, both
formal and informal. These lectures will survey this theory, explaining what we
have learned, as well as what we have not.

Background: an upper level introductory course in game theory, at the level
of Gibbons (1992) or Osborne (2004).
Course Outline
1. The basic structure of repeated games under perfect monitoring
2. Repeated games with imperfect public monitoring
3. Repeated games with private monitoring
4. The basic reputation argument
5. The Canonical Reputation Model and Reputation Effects
