    Hi Enrique

    When you crowdfund the Litigation Game boardgame, let me know. I’d fund that. 🙂

    Thanks for subscribing to The Research Whisperer.

    Hello Professor
    I was drawn to your work The Parable of the Prisoners because of my interest in cooperation among litigating parties. Your piece was insightful and worthy of praise for its historical context, and despite some complexities in the subject matter, you were able to provide an easy to understand format to grasp the far-reaching tentacles of the “Parable of the Prisoners” model.

    I’m looking forward to reading more of your upcoming posts.

      Thanks Eva! I see civil and criminal litigation as a “war of attrition” or “mixed-motive game” (to borrow Thomas Schelling’s term) in which, although the economic interests of the opposing parties are in conflict, there is a lot of room for cooperation.
