Robert Axelrod interview by Radiolab about good deeds and conflict

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Robert Axelrod was interviewed on a Radiolab episode called "One Good Deed Deserves Another." In the episode, Axelrod shares his research—dating back decades—on a variety of conflict strategies including being good and "tit for tat." Axelrod and other guests then discuss how these conflict strategies can be seen in real-life scenarios such as a Word War I battle on the Western Front and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
