Frederick Betz
2020 Theoretical Economics Letters  
In this research, we formulate a "game-theoretic approach" to include financial regulation as an explicit part of the model of a financial market.  ...  Future research direction from this game approach can extend the traditional "endogenous economic theory of markets" into an empirical modeling technique-which can ground economic theory in the real history  ...  (It will provide a historical case for seeing how a financial crisis can be analyzed in a new approach of game-theoretic models).  ...
