Welcome to Strategy Views. An exploration of the ideas of Tom Schelling.

Tom Schelling’s writing on strategy have fascinated me over 40 years. A long time to read and re-read 6 or 7 books and less than 30 articles. I am a slow reader.

My overall sense is that there are mostly two types of Schelling readers: one who is grounded in game theory, while the other eschews formal models. Both of these types of readers will miss out on Schelling’s unique contribution — well thought examples and strategic analysis informed by game theory, but never dominated by it.
