The evolution of post-communist countries: An interpretation from the perspective of cooperation Dimiter Ialnazov Kyoto University Nikolay Nenovsky University of National and World Economy, Sofia, LEO (STUDIUM) and ICER1 Summary: The basic hypothesis we present is the following: both the transition phases and the diversity of trajectories of post-communist countries are the result of the difference in prevailing strategic behaviours. This difference determines the models of cooperation, namely the two main archetypes that of the prisoner's dilemma and the stag hunter, applied at the socioeconomic context of post-communist transition. These two archetypal societal models are on their part conditional on the existence of external and internal anchors. While with the prisoner's dilemma, that became a model of total exchange under the conditions of high social heterogeneity and broken informational channels, it is profitable not to cooperate, under the stag hunter model (a model involving a common goal, a common project) advantageous in general are cooperative strategies. The various countries in different phases can be approximated to either one or the other game – the prisoner's dilemma or the stag hunter. A shift to the cooperative game becomes possible as a result of the operation of internal or external anchors. For instance, in the beginning of the transition, with no clear vision in sight amid an outburst of large diversity of economic and social actors, and old system's information channels falling to pieces, the appropriate analytical model to apply would be the prisoner's dilemma.
