As Pete knows, sports and games provide good models for explaining some of these things. It is a shame that so much effort went into the mathematical analysis of two-person games instead of the game of cricket (without using maths). This piece dates from 1970 (coincidentally while the Australians were playing India, as they are doing this week) but I only got around to tidying it up recently.
In this analysis the rules of the game stand in for all the institutional factors in a social context.
