A World of Self-interest

Despite being just a hypothetical situation, prisoner's dilemma reflects in an accurate how we tend to behave. Oftentimes the decisions that are best for us are at odds with each other.

We can see some examples of this:

  • Drugs or doping in sports: if no one uses them those who best train are awarded, if any athlete cheats he can get caught and exploit the fair results.
  • Military spending: if no country had an army that'd mean no war, but if just one country had an army it could rule the world.
