Society and Economy - Models of Social Man
This book confronts a major institution of recent decades - neo-liberalism and its exaggerated pro-market views. It examines two of its Game Theory models: "The Prisoner's Dilemma" and "The Tragedy of the Commons". Both are shown to be basically unstable; they may change into several quite distinct games at any phase. Market economics has a base in Game Theory much in the same way as mathematics in formal logic. A comparative succes in mathematics, less so in economics, for a huge superstructure over an unstable base is not a comfortable position.
