If you suppose an outside agency such as mafia, then it becomes a different game altogether, i.e., the outcome changes from that of a prisoner's dilemma. Therefore, mafia does not really solves a prisoner's dilemma; it simply shifts [View full text and thread]
Yes, the prisoners dilemma gives an simple example. [View full text and thread]
One of the ways the prisoner's dilemma can be overcome is by the prescence of an outside agency (i.e. the mafia). The agency (mafia) enforces the rule that if either of the prisoner's confess, they will face a punishment (death)greater [View full text and thread]

The matrix you describe is not a prisoners dilemma (PD) but something similar to it (if I read it correctly  it is a bit garbled). It is a game sometimes called the efficiency game. It is similar to a PD because each player has a [View full text and thread]

if the game is repeated a finite no of times then collusion cannot be rationalised and we can only find one unique equilibrium  to cheat.
To see this, remember that the only reason to cooperate is to avoid a backlash in the future. [View full text and thread]

As you tell the story cooperation is not possible. Maybe it is because of that that we have trafic lights and highway police.
Cooperation could be possible if the drivers drive always in a small city, since bad behavior today may be [View full text and thread]

No, there are games where no Nash equilibrium exists.
