Mutual cooperation will occur if they can, and mutual defection if they cannot. The problem of establishing trust The possibility of trust growing spontaneously In the commons-game-as-an-assurance-game, tragedy in the commons is not a foregone conclusion as it is in the prisoners’ dilemma version. Mutual cooperation to avert the tragedy is possible but by no means guaranteed. Realizing this possibility requires prior resolution of the problem of providing assurance or, equivalently, establishing trust.

How then is it possible to establish enough social capital in the form of trust for reciprocity to bring about voluntary cooperation in a large-group assurance problem? In seeking to solve this puzzle, Ostrom (1998a) proposed that each individual assesses subjectively, on the basis of their reputations, the trustworthiness of those with whom they share the assurance problem. This subjective assessment is reassessed over time in the light of how others’ reputations are affected by unfolding evidence of how they have practised reciprocity.
