The Menu for Choice How do States Make Decisions?

Slide 2

I. Spellbinding Realism and its Assumptions RISK Lord Palmerston: "His Majesty\'s Government has no lasting companions, just changeless interests." Winston Churchill: "If Hitler attacked damnation, I would make no less than a great reference to the fallen angel in the House of Commons."

Slide 3

A. States are the pertinent performers in world legislative issues Evidence: Most wars battled by one or more states Counter-confirm: Trade is not state-to-state (but rather diminishes interstate clash), >50% of wars include non-state on-screen characters, and IGO participation decreases interstate clash

Slide 4

B. States act "as though" unitary, sound on-screen characters Evidence: Even liberal states regularly hone "power legislative issues" – i.e. US mediation in Latin America, British imperialism, Chinese administration in Vietnam, and so forth. Counter-confirm: the "law based peace"

Slide 5

C. States really seek after the "national interest" Evidence: Rational estimation seems to happen (Lord Palmerston cite) Counter-prove: Leaders matter, requirement for remote strategy exhortation, intentional misfortunes of sway (EU, Czechoslovakia)

Slide 6

II. Prescriptive Realism Seek a "Parity of Power" Logic: Since it\'s a cruel world, greater states are relied upon to vanquish littler ones (unless the little one gets associates) Problem: Strong confirmation proposes that uneven characters of force (difference) are less war-inclined than parities of force (equality)!

Slide 7

B. Si vis pacem, para bellum (If you need peace, get ready for war) Logic: Deterrence hypothesis holds that the more grounded you are, the more improbable peopleare to assault you. Issue: Power legislative issues expands war hazard: marking an outside collusion, developing arms (whether common or one-sided). States that plan for war tend to battle a considerable measure.

Slide 8

C. "War Is the Health of the State" Logic: War joins countries, extends the effective ones, and produces development War is imperfect Bargaining without war: Side An and Side B are contending over something. Communicating every side\'s offer as a rate, A gets x of the questioned assets or region and B gets 1-x. So An\'s offer in addition to B\'s offer = 1, or 100%. This is called Pareto Optimality (nothing is left on the table).

Slide 9

b. Contrast with War Each side has a shot of winning and losing. One side\'s shot of winning is the opposite side\'s possibility of losing. Victor gets everything (100% of debated assets), washout gets nothing (0%) Both sides endure costs (monetary, social, military, and so forth.)

Slide 10

The Math Represent A\'s likelihood of winning as p. At that point B\'s likelihood of winning is 1-p. A\'s result for war = p*1 + (1-p)*0 – CostsA Simplify: p - CostsA B\'s result for war = (1-p)*1+p*0 – CostsB Simplify: 1-p - CostsB The aggregate profit for war is (p-CostsA) + (1-p-CostsB) = p – CostsA + 1 – p – CostsB = 1 – CostsA – Costs B Since dealing gives an aggregate return of 1 and 1 > 1 – CostsA – CostsB war is wasteful. Not Pareto Optimal.

Slide 11

D. Try not to be a Sucker 1. Rationale Prisoners\' Dilemma: Used to model "Security Dilemmas" - Efforts to build own security make others less secure (arms races, and so forth.) Both players wind up more regrettable, despite the fact that each plays objectively!

Slide 12

2. Issues Repeated play: Axelrod\'s "competition" builds up that "dependably imperfection" is problematic! Predominant: TFT Not all recreations are PD. Some have helpful results. EARTH reenactment: Establishes that best partnership system is: never start war, never associate with initiator, dependably partner with target. "Aggregate security states" do best!

Slide 13

3. Rundown No matter what the result is to a war, the two sides could simply have discovered some assention that BOTH would have wanted to war – IF them two conceded to how the war was liable to turn out. Case: Both sides in a war would ALWAYS be in an ideal situation by essentially embracing the war\'s result (other than the genuine battling part) as a pre-war deal. So why do individuals battle?

Slide 14

III. Bolt\'s Theorem against the National Interest Focus: How to total individual interests into social or national enthusiasm Setting and question Three or more natives Three or more results or destinations they should rank: Example: financial development, human rights, and military security. Is there a sensible route for society overall to rank the results? Could be anything – voting, surveying, mind-perusing, and so on. Is there any framework at all that would be sensible?

Slide 15

C. Documentation Choices or results are shown by capital letters: A, B, C, and so on. Inclinations showed by utilization of letters p, i, or r: Strong inclination: If somebody favors one alternative to another we compose: A p B Indifference: If somebody supposes An and B are about equivalent, we compose An i B Weak inclination: If A p B or An i B then A r B . So A r B signifies "An is at any rate in the same class as B"

Slide 16

2. A negligible meaning of reasonability Preferences are associated : Given any pair of choices, somebody can relate them with p, i, or r. Inclinations are transitive : If A r B and B r C then A r C.

Slide 17

D. Attributes of an alluring conglomeration method Universality : Our strategy ought to apply to any gathering of reasonable individuals, paying little respect to their particular inclinations around A, B, or C.

Slide 18

2. Non-Dictatorship If Bob says: A p B But other people says B p A then… We ought not reason that for society, A p B

Slide 19

3. Unanimity If everybody concurs that A p B then… We ought to presume that for society, A p B

Slide 20

4. Aggregate Rationality If people are balanced, our method ought to make social inclinations that are sane Remember what this implies: associated and transitive inclinations

Slide 21

5. Freedom of Irrelevant Alternatives Suppose I have the choices A, B, and C. I can rank these anyway I need. One illustration: A p B p C Now assume another alternative is accessible: D. I should not change the request of A, B, and C in respect to each other . Beginning with above case: D p A p B p C  OK A p D p B p C  OK A p B p D p C  OK A p B p C p D  OK D p B p A p C  Not OK (B and A swapped places) Restaurant relationship: Waiter offers chicken or fish. I like chicken better. Server returns and clarifies there is additionally hamburger. I now choose I need the fish. (Not OK)

Slide 22

D. Attributes of an attractive conglomeration method (returned to) Universality : Applies to individuals with various qualities or convictions Non-Dictatorship : No one individual\'s inclination exceeds other people together Unanimity : If everybody lean towards one choice to another, then so ought to society in general Collective Rationality : Should create a transitive positioning of choices Independence of Irrelevant Alternatives : New choices don\'t change the relative positions of prior choices

Slide 23

E. Conclusion and Implications Arrow demonstrated these conditions would all be able to be valid! Suggestions There are times when there is no single "national interest," "general will" or "will of the general population" Rational people may not make a balanced collectivity Preference cycles and the force of motivation setting Voter 1: A p B p C Voter 2: B p C p A Voter 3: C p A p B SOCIETY: A p B p C p A!
