Thursday, February 7, 2008 Fairness – Divided Dollar Experiments From a rational view, if A proposes $49 and B $1, B accepts When confronted with an unfair bargain, the part of brain that register pain and disgust registers unfairness Demand for shared sacrifice, all sides must see a fair process, outcome not important It doesn’t matter how much they’re getting, it’s the other side’s intentions Fairness, not relative power, affects approval of negotiations Group Think – Iraq How did so many really smart people get the execution of the war so wrong? Bush came into office saying he would deal with Iraq. o Not invading, but strict 9/11 impacted administration’s minds o Combine idea of a country behind 9/11 potentially happen again + pre-existing desire to deal with Iraq o Highly motivated groups feel like they need to act quickly Bush administration began considering an invasion of Iraq o Strategy – do it as neatly and efficiently as possible, leave area intact o “Shock and Awe” – decapitate regime, Iraqis embrace democracy o Thought war wouldn’t cost anything Set of assumptions got embedded in administration’s beliefs (Bay of Pigs)
