Description - Conflict and Cooperation by A. Allan Schmid

Allan Schmid's innovative text, "Conflict and Cooperation: Institutional and Behavioral Economics", investigates 'the rules of the game,' how institutions - both formal and informal - affect these rules, and how these rules are changed to serve competing interests. This text addresses both formal and informal institutions and the impact of alternative institutions, as well as institutional change and evolution. With its broad applications and numerous practice and discussion questions, this book will be appealing not only to students of economics, but also to those studying sociology, law, and political science. It addresses formal and informal institutions, the impact of alternative institutions, and institutional change and evolution. It presents a framework open to changing preferences, bounded rationality, and evolution. It explains how to form empirically testable hypotheses using experiments, case studies, and econometrics. It includes numerous practice and discussion questions.
