P.o.W: is a thought experiment into a game theory approach to an important environmental issue on sustainability of extraction of limited renewable resource. In PoW it is abstracted as 'fish' but could well represent any limited (and/or limiting) resource: a society can expand and carry out large scale actions over time (including war) but 'some' limiting factor may slow and stop such unbridled growth: other 'players', energy, or the life support provided by ecosystems. The game rules behind P.o.W addresses/checks the validity (or lack of) of the famous 'Tragedy of the Commons' by allowing each player to consider a course of action with/against other players vis-a-vis a limiting and/or limited resource. Each player brings his/her strategies to bear: will the Military mind succeed or the Nurturing type prevail? Or combination thereof.. what about a Mercantile Hegemony? Trade and empire building strategies? Some other or a completely new emergent approach.
