At this point, Friend #2 and Friend will enter #1 a month-long “EXCLUSIVE DATE” in which neither Friend #1 nor Friend #2 will share their cool finds with other friends. However, for both sanctions and engagement strategies, the costs may be related to the means of sanctioning the other player, as is the case with the previous strategy, or of concluding the agreement in the case of the latter strategy. A large amount of evidence shows that people are willing to pay personal fees to punish those who free themselves on cooperative behavior of themselves or others. Several theoretical and experimental studies show that such costly punishment (CP) can maintain collaboration even in games without repeated interactions6,7,8,9,11,11,14,14,16,17,18,19.20. However, it is also indicated that CP may not be beneficial to cooperation or may not be beneficial to populations playing games of or games of public products, even if direct reciprocity21,22,23 indirect reciprocity24, connected populations25 or optional participation are taken into account. B 26. As such, this work offers an important new approach to understanding the emergence of cooperative behaviour in social dilemmas, in which strategies of engagement and penalization are explicitly (and independently) considered. In short, our work shows that the general opinion or general knowledge that good agreements are good friends is a very relevant guideline that, as we have shown here, can be extended to good cost-sharing agreements that lead to best friends. A simple business contract between friends protects the relationship by separating business and friendship. The oral or written contract lists each party`s obligations with respect to the company and the others. Violation of the contract is against the law and may result in legal action. While it is possible to write a basic contract on your own, it is advisable to consult a lawyer to obtain professional knowledge in the process. If you risk your personal wealth through a partnership with a friend, a lot of trust is needed on both sides.
It may be important to set aside your personal feelings about friendship so that they do not affect the way business finances are managed. One option is to call on a neutral third party, who can monitor financial arrangements, so that he does not cause problems with the company and damages your friendship. Friend #2 is free to discuss the terms of this contract with anyone. Friend #2, however, it is forbidden to introduce Friend #1 as “The Person of the Contract” or “My friend who is quite strange to be friends”. When you launch a new collaborative business, it is worth determining in advance how much your partner is committed to achieving the common goal and what compensation is expected in the event of a breach of cooperation. Various examples in biological and social contexts have shown how common it is to conclude prior compensation agreements after the fact, indicating that this behaviour could have been shaped by natural selection.
