Pajamas Media: A truly excellent analysis of US Foreign policy using game theory

PJTV does it again, specifically the segment they call ‘Afterburner’, which consistently has well researched and highly creative analysis.

In this one, they use game theory, the best kind of modelling for human transactions in this writer’s opinion, to analyze how Obama’s foreign policy is working or not. While I think the element of time is missing, (we may not be seeing Obama’s entire hand yet) it is a sound analysis. For anyone wishing to explore this kind of thinking in greater detail please buy and read the most excellent book, Moral Calculations by Laslo Mero, on game theory and human frailty.
