Never ending irregular wars and information: A conjecture


  • Documentos de Trabajo - CIDSE


  • An alternative conjecture to the never-ending wars puzzle is introduced here. It is argued that the way in which Information flows through the social structure of war determines its duration. The key point is that irregular war changes the underlying social network structure and the way information flows through it, blocking informational cascades about its outcome. Local outcomes do not become global and universal, winning coalitions do not emerge.
