From the New York Times: “Games of Chicken”

Looks like my views are not unique.  I posted earlier on the subject of two-player games and the US debt ceiling situation. It must be an effective analogy, since the New York Times references it:

From the article:

Investors have grown accustomed to partisan games of chicken that always end with the needed increase in the government’s borrowing authority. But this showdown, many say, is riskier because of the strongly held antispending, antitax views of the many freshman House Republicans combined with the fragility of the economic recovery.
