But the argument we gave above has ruled out the second constellation. Thus we shall assume the first one. We calculate the difference between the value of V if qN = 1 and the value of V if qN = 0, as: 2 2 pN 1 − 2 − 1+ 1+ 1− pN − 1 − pN − 1 − qR 1− 2 1 − qR 1− + 1− + 1− pN + 1 − qR pN + qR This is negative if: 1+ 1− pN − 1− 2 1 − qR 1− + 1− pN + qR 2 > 1+ pN − 1 − 1 − qR 1− + pN + 1 − qR The term on the left-hand side of this inequality is the same as the term on the right-hand side, except that has been replaced by 1 − .

Then that fraction of other’s payoffs is internalized (Trivers, 1971) and evolution favours behaviour that produces outcomes on higher iso-fitness lines x + y = k 2 This device can support a large portion of socially efficient behaviour when is close to 1 – that is, when interactions between two individuals are symmetrical, predictable and frequent. But humans specialize in exploiting one-off opportunities with a variety of different partners, and here is small, as in the same steep dashed line.

In period 2, the decision-maker makes a wrong choice if and only if the weather in period 1 was of the type that is objectively less frequent. Hence, the decision-maker makes the wrong choice with probability e2 = . Clearly, as t increases, et decreases, because the decision-maker has more information. The weak law of large numbers, moreover, implies: limt→ et = 0. Finally, by the strong law of large numbers, with probability 1 there will be some random time t˜ such that, in all periods ˜ the decision-maker will make the ‘right’ decision.
