A Talk on Individual versus Group Morality: the Role of Information by Dr Jaideep Roy
Title of the talk: Individual versus Group Morality: the Role of Information
About the Talk: A rise in the number of moral individuals in a group can hurt the morality of the group’s collective action with unexpected consequences for the powerless. We argue that this may have nothing to do with the standard arguments leading to non-cooperative distortions. We then characterise strategic environments and models of morality where this is true solely because, after all, individual morals are private information. We then study the role of pre-play communication in mitigating such distortionary effects.
