A Non-technical Introduction to Bargaining Theory

This article presents some principles of bargaining theory in a non-technical language in order to make them accessible to people outside the academic community. These principles are presented keeping in view several real-life situations confronting Presidents and Prime Ministers, policy makers and planners, executives, civil society and military leaders, and not the least, managers, be they of the government, households, NGOs or businesses, big or small.
