Choosing Partners: A Classroom Experiment
Bergstrom, Carl T.; Bergstrom, Theodore C.; Garratt, Rodney J.
Journal of Economic Education, v44 n1 p47-57 2013
The authors describe a classroom experiment designed to present the idea of two-sided matching, the concept of a stable assignment, and the Gale-Shapley deferred-acceptance mechanism. Participants need no prior training in economics or game theory, but the exercise will also interest trained economists and game theorists. (Contains 5 tables, 2 figures, and 5 notes.)
