World Affairs

The World is getting smaller and smaller.  Social interactions have always been important and will ever be more so.  Today’s challenges grow in complexity.  Reason enough to understand the dynamics behind it.  And it starts in your own backyard.


Open Book

Juli, T. (1997). The Logic of Social Interactions in Foreign Policy: The 1994-1996 US-Chinese Negotiations on Intellectual Property Rights. University of Miami.

The thesis analyzes the 1994-1996 US-Chinese negotiations on intellectual property rights.  The study sheds light on the domestic as well as international dynamics among the main actors and simulates them with the help of a computer.  The dissertation thus demonstrates the viability of sociocybernetics, the quantitative study of the interactions of social systems, in analyzing dynamic social interactions in foreign economic policy and deriving policy recommendations.

Juli, T. (1994). A Rational Choice Model of Trade Policies: Incorporating Institutional Economics into Traditional Game Theory. Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

The whitepaper and Master’s Essay discusses how new institutional economics can enhance the explanatory value of traditional game theory in the analysis of trade policies
