A Beautiful Mind
Principle of Economy
In this movie, the theory that I could notice is about equilibrium theory. It is a solution concept of a game involving two or more players and each player is assumed to know the equilibrium strategies of the other players and no player has anything to gain by changing only his own strategy. The theory is clearly seen in a scene when there are four men in a bar including Nash and a blond girl walks in with four other girls. Russel suggest that it would be in their combined interest for the four of them to go after the 4girls on the purpose that they’d all at least get a woman, but not a woman that each man wants. They want the blond girl because she can’t be shared with others and they would trade each of their girls for the blond girl. There are a lot of moments that actually just a hallucination. Some of his experiences were only a fantasy. He met three people that actually don’t exist in the real life; they are Charles Herman, which is his roommate, William Parcher that is the government agencies and Marcee, Charles Herman’s nephew. Besides, the secret mission in pentagon, a secret laboratory and the code that attached to his hand don’t even exist. It starts to send me a signal that these parts don’t real when Nash was sent to the mental hospital in the middle of his seminar. From that moment, it was revealed that he suffered from schizophrenia. This movie really inspires me. In economic way, it shows that you have to work hard in order to be success and gain something that is useful. And after his invention of the equilibrium theory, it gives the world more knowledge. It also reminds me how important is compassion to someone who suffering a mentally ill. At the end of the story, the main character has fully recovered from the disease. He did the medical therapy to help him to recover. I think that he’s a very lucky man because he has such an amazing wife who care a lot about him even though...
