Reciprocity, a human tool?

Since several days, I've been wondering if reciprocity is a fundamental principle. Wikipedia argues that it is "a fundamental principle in social psychology". Hence, only for humans. In my view, reciprocity also applies to primates and probably to other lifeforms. After some reflection, I made this diagram. Lines 2, 3 and 4 are (probably) derivatives of line 1:...

Inflatie: van aanbod naar vraag??

Op 22 maart plaatste het Financieele Dagblad dit artikel: “Postbezorgers krijgen loonsverhoging van 19% over de komende twee jaar”. Dit artikel maakt een onderwerp actueel dat al behoorlijk lang op mijn lijst stond: gaan we wel van aanbod-gedreven naar een vraag-gedreven inflatie??

Closed versus open

Last Tuesday, I had a sudden burst of inspiration, while trying to take an afternoon nap. My nap lost, and my inspiration won. The resulting diagram (below) is probably the one that failed to materialise during the past several months. Finally, a certain situation is making sense to me. Most of the time, I’m in the right upper corner of my diagram above (ie, Hope)....
