Game Theory and the Middle East
I love game theory. Like the scientific method or John Rawls's Theory of Justice, I love how you can set up a system with simple rules and reveal deep insight into complex issues. With that in mind, I'll try to post a few links on game theory and related topics and the Middle East situation:
- Both Sides Now By Robert Wright - Robert Wright, author of Non-Zero and unabashed advocate of applying game theory solutions to real-world problems, details 5 possible reasons for the seemingly irrational escalation of violence in the Middle East and how game theory might indicate that peace is around the corner.
- Francis Su's Fair Division Page - A pretty good introduction to "envy-free" solutions to common problems.
