# Farmer and owner Bayesian game

A farmer has talent $$\theta$$ uniformly distributed on $$[0,1]$$. His payoff from farming his land is $$\theta.$$ Before setting up his farm, he chooses some $$w\geq0$$, which a plant owner can either accept or reject. If the owner rejects, then the farmer farms on his own, and the owner gets 0. If the owner accepts, then the farmer's payoff is $$w$$, while the owner's is $$\frac{3}{2}\theta-w$$.

I have found the following BNE: farmer offers some $$w\geq\theta$$ and the owner rejects all offers. Do others arrive at this as well? Thank you.

• Another BNE (and infact a PBE) is one where a type $\theta$ farmer offers $w = \frac{3}{2}\theta$ and the owner always accepts. Commented Jun 3, 2020 at 2:21
