Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: In this project, Verdier set out to explain why the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has been so successful. Using game theory, Verdier argues that the object is to maximize non-proliferation by promising to reward signatories and threatening to punish non-signatories and cheaters. He then makes predictions about which countries were likely to sign and when. Finally, he is testing those predictions on a panel of all countries from 1968-2002.
