Abstract

Ethnic and other forms of tribal conflict have been extensively studied, but not within the economic model of conflict. The paper develops and empirically tests a model in which a dominant group chooses the division of jointly produced income, and a subservient group then allocates its resources between joint and separate production. Free trade among members of a society is argued to be an important determinant of the amount of intertribal cooperation.
