Example text

28 Daniel Friedman and Nirvikar Singh 29 do not match up especially well with everyday experience. One often sees vengeance when the discount factor is too small to support rational punishment (for example, in one-off encounters with strangers), and often the rational punishment fails to appear (for example, when a culprit apologizes sincerely). This chapter explores a different class of models. We consider repeated interactions in the context of small groups that enforce social norms. The norms are modelled not as traits of individual group members, but rather as traits of the group itself.

8 Then we have a free-rider problem with respect to group reputation. Each individual would benefit from using low in interactions outside the group, but the group’s reputation, and hence its members’ fitness, would suffer. The group must in some way regulate its members’ behaviour or things would unravel. We hypothesize that groups themselves possess traits that evolve to solve such problems. Note that social groups, unlike butterflies, use conscious mechanisms to control mimicry. Gangs may have secret handshakes and other codes of communication, but these are relevant only for identifying membership within the group.
