However, you shouldn't assume that I'll be rational in that situation, because many people won't. I think the optimal amount for Player A to split is probably somewhere between $50/$50 and $70/$30. That has nothing to do with Player A's altruism, and everything to do with Player A's desire to maximize his own profit, in light of the potential irrationality of Player B.
Obviously it's much more desirable to be Player A than Player B, but Player A is not all-powerful since Player B has veto power. Player A can't just assume that Player B will accept any offer Player A makes...especially if the offer is $100/$0.Originally Posted by fredmertz
