|SO FAR I'VE GOT a list of three "flavors" of meth. individualism:
1) the collective action problem, prisoners' dilemma, free-rider
problem, which are all about the contrast between individual
rationality and collective rationality.
2) the "representative agent" model, which equates individual and
3) pure-and-simple micro economics, which focuses on micro rationality
with little concern for collective rationality.
is there a fourth?
