Game Theory Concepts Conclusion “Peer assessment is an arrangement in which individuals consider the amount , level, value, worth, quality or success of the products or outcomes of learning with peers of similar status” (Keith Topping 1995) Cooperation amongst team members requires trust
Both team members are needed to cooperate for the best results
If one team member is cooperative while the other is problematic results will suffer
If both team members are problematic then results will greatly suffer http://faculty.lebow.drexel.edu/McCainR//top/eco/game/intro.html

Review of Educational Research, Vol. 68, No. 3 pp. 249-276 Peer grading should be fair and honest, but since its left in the hands of team members each member must trust the other members to give a truthful grade.

The honest approach where all members grade fairly.
The dishonest approach where one team member grades harshly in order to appear superior to their class mates.
The positive end of the dishonest approach where all students give everyone good grades out of fear of possible retaliation. http://www.spectacle.org/995/bus.html The prisoner's dilemma in business can be seen in:
How businesses price products
Market products,
Between employees and employers.
Take pricing strategies if both firms decide to cooperate on an equal price then it results in better profits for both companies. However, if one decides not to then one company suffers loss of profit.
An example of employees in a business would be if there were two sales people compete to be the best seller, but if they each cooperated then each would succeed.
