One Response to “Max Bazerman, PON Executive Committee”

  • Sylvia A.

    Dear Dr. Bazerman: A recent study of Trump voters found they were willing to give up advantages of government programs from which they themselves benefited in order to take benefits away from people they deemed “undeserving.” You taught us that a trap in negotiation is to damage your own position in an irrational drive to punish the other guy or minimize their benefit. Would it be worth a paper–or perhaps just a blog entry–to examine how Trump supporters fell into this trap?
