A few words on the model

The visualization illustrates a model developed at The Danish-French School of Copenhagen that shows an exponential relationship of value creation versus trust/honesty.

It works in the following way: a population consisting of a number of individuals undergo a number of transactions (iterations). Each individual is described by its capital, honesty and its trust to each of the other individuals. Each transaction occurs between two individuals A and B in the following way:

The result is a graph showing growth depends exponentially on the honesty and trust of a population.

It quite clearly illustrates that for a group of individuals, adopting an honest and trustful culture is a winning strategy.

Try and move the iterations slider, say double the number of iterations. The slope of the point cloud doubles as well. That would indicate that the growth is also an exponential function of the number of iterations. In consequence it would be a winning strategy to process as many transactions as possible, i.e. adopting an open and engaging attitude.
