Contagion of Norm Breaking vs the Number of Righteous People

Contagion of Norm Breaking vs the Number of Righteous People

This video was recorded at International Workshop on Coping with Crises in Complex Socio-Economic Systems. The Norm Game introduced by Axelrod is investigated by computer simulations carried out for agents distributed in a random network. The agents are labeled as sinners or punishers after their first decision. The stationary state shows a bistable behaviour: all become sinners or all become punishers [1,2]. Here we show how this bistability changes when some amount of agents always break the norm or always punish.
