Playing games that make you Rich (Part One)
Infinite games for the welfare of all sentience is where it's at. 🦋
Astrid, I really enjoyed this post! I started learning about Game Theory, the other week, and your post gave me some good tidbits to chew on :-)
Astrid, your writing is a revelation. Brilliant. Enlightening. Refreshing. You write from your heart, soul, mind and personal values. Not necessarily in that order. :)
I didn’t know about the farmer/census stats and Vivek’s thread; it is indeed a super memorable solution, will try soon enough. Thanks for the post!
Wanted to understand/discuss some of your points further:
- How is the entirety of politics a zero sum game? Let us consider a politician who gets elected, and through some better policies and curbing of corruption, manages to raise a town out of poverty (through building of roads, giving incentives to business). Or is this politician (once elected) now playing positive sum games and therefore not a part of the "zero-sum game of getting elected" in your definition?
- What about business undercutting competitors. Are those zero sum games?
Thanks for an illuminating post!
