This runs against Rational Man Hypothesis in economics, and the actor should have no incentive when the behavior would not maximize its personal economic interests. This article will take a game theory analysis on Negotiorum Gestio in self-study room, in order to strive the reasonable incentive for a rational man to act Negotiorum Gestio.
