We then discuss how norms of cooperation, public pressure, and of public space could mediate the effect of economic growth on the level of public discourse. Noncooperative Contributions Here we suppose that each individual i chooses how much to work, and therefore how much to participate in symposia, noncooperatively. Accordingly, we are interested in finding combinations of choices that form a Nash equilibrium so that no individual has an incentive to change their choices. One such combination of choices is the one in which each individual spends all of his or her time working and does not participate in any symposia.

N : (wli∗ )ρ−1 w ρ−1 N − b (1 − l ∗j ) b=0 (4) j=1 We concentrate on the focal, symmetric equilibrium, whereby each individual works the same number of hours. Therefore, by solving (4) we obtain the following equilibrium levels of labor (l ∗ ) and participation in symposia (s ∗ ): ρ ∗ l = ρ w 1−ρ N ρ ρ w 1−ρ N + b 1−ρ ∗ ∗ s = 1−l = b 1−ρ ρ ρ w 1−ρ N + b 1−ρ (5) Time spent working rises with economic growth (that is, with an increase in w) whereas participation in symposia diminishes with economic growth.

Voters are made worse off by the breakdown of trust and communication, or (more precisely) by the increase in variability of their own perceptions of the implications of a particular ideological position for policy outcomes. Within a community, it is possible to achieve collective, apparently altruistic ends because what Schofield calls the “common knowledge basis of cooperation” is satisfied. As Schofield points out: The fundamental theoretical problem underlying the question of cooperation is the manner by which individuals attain knowledge of each others’ preferences and likely behavior.
