Using your numbers...It's rational to cooperate.<br />Using your numbers, co-op/co-op x100 gives 100 points<br />Co-op/co-op x99 + co-op/defect gives 101/97<br />Co-op/co-op x98 + co-op/defect + defect/defect gives 100/95<br />Co-op x97 + coop/defect + defect x2 gives 98/93<br />96 co-opts give 96/91, so, defecting at 96 always has worse rewards than coopt until the endAnonymousnoreply@blogger.com
