On September 19, unfortunately we lived an earthquake in this city, which left damages in several buildings and lives of people. But, also woke up the whole society, in the majority to the young people of this society, in which all generated a great help. The aid was too much, which generated an excess supply of provisions in the city, and there were no places where there was the emergency of sending food.
The question I ask you here is: Did the reaction of all the young people generate a Kantian equilibrium? And how about a nash equilibrium?
I think that all the help that was generated was a positive externality, and in the Kantian categorical imperative, everyone in his mind thought “if I were in an emergency, I would like them to help me”, then all the young people decided to follow their categorical imperative and everyone helped. In terms of nash equilibrium, I do not know if it was a strategy not to move to expose oneself to collapses, insecurity and panic.
But still, we all helped and the city remained standing. I think there was a Kantian equilibrium here and it is an example where a Katian equilibrium is better than a nash equilibrum, in terms of altruism.
I hope to hear your opinion about it!
