## Dominant Strategy Equilibrium and Nash Equilibrium

Suppose two firms, Firm Y, Inc., and Firm X, Inc., are locked in a bitter pricing struggle in the bottled water industry. In strategy A, pricing payoff matrix, Firm Y can choose a given row of outcomes by offering A price ("up") or B price ("down"). Firm X can choose a given column of outcomes by choosing to offer A price ("left") or B price ("right"). Neither firm can choose which cell of the payoff matrix to obtain; the payoff for each firm depends upon the pricing strategies of both firms.
