The Wikipedia article does not support your view ... here: http://www.heretical.com/pound/dollar.html

Do you read your own links? It says right there that the game is not rational, "best time is during a party when ... the propensity to calculate does not settle in" and that the game models addiction (which is anything but rational.) The winning move is still not to play (well, ok, this part it doesn't say, but it's implied).

Hey, Sahan, if you give me 94 cents, I will bid $1.80, thus freeing you from paying (as the 3rd runner up)

Actually, I've found out a way to create my own sighs at no cost to myself. I'm gonna be rich!

Every breath you take increases your oxidative stress, bringing you closer to death. To offset this, simply reduce your food intake by half!

Oh man, this is a great idea. If I can manage to market my coworkers' sighs I will have an untold abundance of cash inflow.
