"How often do we hear complaints that the share of power in a parliament isn't a fair reflection of the electorate's choice? As we've seen recently in the UK, it's not always the case that a party with more seats ends up with more power. In fact, it's quite possible for a party with a good number of seats to have no power at all. The explanation lies in the subtleties of cooperative and non-cooperative behaviour. Altruism, spite, bargaining, collusion - experimental economics and game theory can help us understand why these kinds of factors are so crucial to shaping our Parliamentary and political systems."
