11:00 - SEMINAR - A Choice for ‘Me’ or for ‘Us’? Using We-Reasoning to Predict Cooperation and Coordination in Games Website | More Information
Cooperation is the foundation of human social life, but it sometimes requires individuals to choose against their individual self-interest. How then is cooperation sustained?
