This article could really use some "how to" information, rather than just fairly esoteric theory. A "tips for successful bargaining" section would be very good. Mdrgon 16:22, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Removed the following self promotion link in the Further Reading section. The destination page is not about bargaining, and is instead a promotion of negotiation in general, with a thinly veiled promotion on the companies services: "* Learn about being a Skillful Negotiator" —Preceding unsigned comment added by Negotiations (talkcontribs) 15:08, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

It would be nice if the article said something about the hardliner and softliner strategies...after several paragraphs of text about game theory there's still nothing about the tradeoffs between the two strategies or what their game theoretic logic is. --Gargletheape (talk) 18:24, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Behavioural theory[edit]

This section is in dire need of references. Also people have added sentences to it that does not have anything to do with Behavioural Theory, but are rather baseless assumptions about where bargaining more often may take place. --Kebman (talk) 08:43, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Negotiation vs. bargaining[edit]

When I first read this article, I expected to find some relevant and information on how to effectively bargain. I found little of use. For that the article is too messy and in no way gives a complete picture on how to effectively bargain, or even the process of simple bargaining. For instance both Nash and The Prisoners Dilemma are used over and over without giving a relevant example, although there are links. The article is simply too easy to confuse with the much wider topic of negotiation, although bargaining is a special way of negotiating a price. --Kebman (talk) 08:47, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

WP is an encyclopaedia, not a collection of manuals. So the article should be a description of what bargaining is, not a manual on how to bargain. Thomas.W (talk) 09:52, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Criticism of bargaining/haggling?[edit]

Would this section be appropriate? There's many sources out there. (talk) 14:30, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
