german language

The paradox of the prisoner s dilemma used in game theory shows that win-win situations are always best. But can this insight be applied in practice? Isn t it precisely the courage to do things differently that triggers innovation? What is the right balance between conflict and cooperation and can the key value of trust help us to break out of this dilemma?
