Intentional Social Change
A Rational Choice Theory
by Yoshimichi Sato, Tohoku University

Why do some efforts to implement social change succeed while others fail? Turning to game theory, Sato attempts to answer the question by analyzing ‘multi-level transactions’ and argues that it is the accumulation of micro-level social actions that determines the macro-level social outcomes.
