The Prisoner’s Dilemma
  • Two criminals have been arrested for bank robbery
  • The police do not have enough evidence for a bank robbery conviction, but do have enough for reckless endangerment
The criminals are split up and offered the following option:
    • If A and B both snitch, they each serve 2 years
    • If A snitches and B stays quiet, A goes free and B serves 3 years
    • If B snitches and A stays quiet, B goes free and A serves 3 years
    • If both remain silent both will serve 1 year for reckless endangerment
