If you’re a sports fan, you’ve probably bought some kind of sports memorabilia
sometime in your life. Folks can buy all kinds of stuff at the ballpark or at the
stadium, ranging from jerseys to hats to balls and photos. There are keychains,
trading cards, blankets, bobble head dolls, and even cookbooks designed for
fans who love their particular sport, who hold a specific team close to their
hearts, or who want to show their pride for the alma mater.
Online auctions are the new kids on the block for

online car auctions, eBay Motors at www.motors.ebay.
com is the most widely used and recognized. An online

agricultural production has become more concentrated -the 30 largest companies control some 2.4 million
ha (Manciana et al, 2009).
Finally, positive experiences with investment in large-scale farming have been recorded in Peru’s Pacific
Stock markets can be differentiated by their trading systems. These trading systems vary in the way
transactions are handled, type of transactions made, type of information available to market
participants, and the process of matching orders to sell and buy (Glen 1994).
Trading systems can be classified by the method of matching the orders, i.e. periodic vis–a vis
continuous market, and also by the presence of a market maker, i.e. continuous system with a
monopolistic specialist vis-à-vis a competition continuous market.
In the remainder of this chapter, we will discuss the process of reaching agreements through negotiation and argumentation. we will start by considering the issue of mechanism design - broadly, what properties we might want a negotiation or argumentation protocol to have - and then go on to discuss auctions, negotiation protocols and strategies, and finally argumentation.
