Let L i be the length of actual effort spent in the i-th transect and Y i denotes the number of individuals detected in the i-th
Consider the following requirement that, at first glance, looks much weaker than the perfect best response condition.
Def A strategy for i is unimprovable against a vector of strategies of her opponents if there is no t − 1 period history (for any t) such that i could profit by deviating from her strategy in period t only (conforming thereafter).
Japan broke into the semiconductor market in the late 1970s. The industry was dei nitely targeted by the Japanese government, which supported a research efort that helped build domestic technological capacity. The sums involved in this subsidy, however, were fairly small. The main component of Japan's activist trade policy, according to U.S. critics, was tacit protectionism. Although Japan had few formal tarifs or other barriers to imports, U.S. firms found that once Japan was able to manufacture a given type of semiconductor chip, few U.S. products were sold there. Critics alleged that there was a tacit understanding by Japanese firms in such industries as consumer electronics, in which Japan was already a leading producer, that they should buy domestic semiconduc tors, even if the price was higher or the quality lower than for competing U.S. products. Was this assertion true? The facts of the case are in dispute to this day.
