Evolution of Trust in Economic Systems

Terence Bossomaier, Michael Harre, James Thompson

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


Trust is a ubiquitous feature of human interactions and plays a significant role in many commercial and economic situations. We examine the relationship between trust and game theory and contrast this with recent evidence from neuroeconomics. Finally we illustrate by computer simulation the evolution of trust in a model of the interaction of financial advisors and their clients.
