How game theory - the ultimate theory of rationality - explains irrational behaviour.

In Hidden Games, MIT economists Moshe Hoffman and Erez Yoeli find a surprising middle ground between the hyperrationality of classical economics and the hyper-irrationality of behavioural economics. They call it hidden games. Reviving game theory, Hoffman and Yoeli use it to explain our most puzzling behaviour, from the mechanics of Stockholm syndrome and internalised misogyny to why we help strangers and have a sense of fairness.

Fun and powerfully insightful, Hidden Games is an eye-opening argument for using game theory to explain all the irrational things we think, feel, and do and will change how you think forever.

Rezensionen
Skillfully wielding the instruments of game theory, Hoffman and Yoeli entertainingly cut away the veneer of social life to expose the Hidden Games underlying our lavish tastes, overconfidence, spin doctoring, philanthropic inclinations, principled commitments and humility. The duo delivers a penetrating look at the cold logic shaping the puzzling patterns that pervade our actions and communities Joseph Henrich, author of The WEIRDest People in the World
