Parents' death.[edit]

I removed the following sentence:

  • His parents, Yehuda Rubinstein (father) and Lea Fainsod (mother) and all his relatives died in 1941–1944 in Poland under Nazi occuption.

after Yuri Ostrovsky reported the error to HelpDesk-l. Ariel's parents could of course not have died 7 years before he was born. This error probably comes from [1] which states:

  • The following pictures and documents are remains from the families of Yehuda Rubinstein (my father) and Lea Fainsod (my mother). All members of the families in these pictures died in Poland, 1941-1944.

Ariel's 1951 birth date is correct, see [2]. -- Jeandré, 2006-01-13t11:44z

The Hebrew Wikipedia page states that his parents emigrated from Bialystok, Poland, in the 1930s. -- Deborahjay (talk) 09:26, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Skepticism of game theory[edit]

Does Game Theory Work? My answer is, 'Of course not, and why should it?'

After reading this book blurb I came here hoping to understand Rubinstein's critique of game theory. Please can someone who knows his work write about it? --Adoniscik(t, c) 16:09, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
