Instead, Section 8 treats each player's final choice of a model in which to analyse the game as essentially exogenous, just as economists usually treat tastes. Using this different notion of "bounded" Bayesian rationality, the conclusion of Section 8 is that the revelation principle still applies, although now agents are characterized by their own models, including the supports of their (exogenous) probabilistic beliefs about other agents' models. Of course, there is no longer any presumption that different agents' models of the game or of each other have anything much in common.

Price leadership in this model comes from whatever firm sets the lowest price. In our model, if the structure is collusive, then the collusive price results. This is exactly as Markham argued would be the case when,ever an industry's product is a nondifferentiable commodity for which the major firms are few in number, recognize their interdependence, and have similar profit functions. S. steel industry's behavior until recently was consistent with price leadership of this type. The Kinked Demand Curve 19 Our model is quite distinct from Markham's other two categories of price leadership: dominant firm leadership and barometric firm leadership.

Steel's 21% market share. Our theory suggests that this increasing presence was disruptive for the following reasons. Imported producers had different cost, demand, and profit functions than the American producers. This meant the foreign companies had little reason to join the domestic producers' kinked demand game.

O'Boyle, Big Steel is Hurting in Buyer Market, Wall Street Journal, 28 May 1985, pp. 16. 15 Quoted from Scherer (1980, p. 170); his source was Machlup (1952, p. 87) who quoted it from a government antitrust brief.
