Combining his personal state-of-the-art examine with findings in cognitive psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, economics, and anthropology, he examines the results of his idea for problems with bioethics, faith, legislation, and our daily lives.

There are also data to suggest that cleaner service quality becomes better when clients are more scarce (Soares et al. 2008). Similarly, in the social behaviour of vervet monkeys, scarce food providers were found to receive more grooming (Fruteau et al. 2009). Such dynamics and adjustments represent potentially general properties of biological markets and are therefore of broad interest. 3. BY-PRODUCT MUTUALISM, PSEUDO-RECIPROCITY AND DEFENCES AGAINST EXPLOITATION By-product effects are present when traits that benefit their bearers directly, additionally impose benefits or costs on other individuals.
