A model that explicitly combines impatience, outside options, exogenous breakdown risk, and even inside options, which reflect players' payoff opportunities whilst they temporarily disagree, is considered by Muthoo (1999, ch. 6). Rubinstein's (1982) bargaining model is widely appraised because it combines a somewhat realistic negotiation process - allowing, at least, for the interchange of offers and counter-offers - with a clear-cut prediction. Unfortunately, the clear-cut prediction based on a unique SPE is not too robust.

Only player 2 observes the realization of a random variable 8. It is common knowledge that player l's reservation value for the good is zero and that 8 is uniformly distributed on e = [0,1]. The game proceeds as follows (see Fig. 12): In period t = 0, Nature draws 0 from e. Player 1 then offers a price Xo EX. Based on his observation of 0, player 2 either accepts - an outcome denoted by (0, xo; O) - or rejects. In the latter case, the game moves on to period t = 1, and player 1 offers a second price Xl EX.
