The war of the sexes
In this audio from VoxEU.org Paul Seabright talks to Viv Davies about his recent book titled "The War of the Sexes: how conflict and cooperation have shaped men and women from pre-history to the present". Seabright explains how game theory can shed light on the complex dynamics that create both conflict and cooperation between the sexes. They discuss the connection between the rise of modern capitalism and the rise of feminism, monogamy and marriage and whether there will ever be sexual equality.
