ECON-1003A Cooperation and Competition
To compete and cooperate are decision-based strategies that create, in some occasions, welfare and progress, and disasters in others. The history of humankind and the history of economic, political and philosophical thinking have been marked by different perceptions about the competition and cooperation among individuals. Today, these phenomena are analyzed by several sciences concerning society and human behavior, and also by natural sciences with great applicability to the problems of today´s world. Within the realm of transdisciplinarity, this course merges the questions about the work of societies and, particularly, about the decision-making processes undertaken by individuals related to market, state and community institutions.
