example of this, perhaps from the perspective of pop culture? Include at least
one scholarly reference in your post that is cited according to APA guidelines.
Three social dilemmas are presented in Chapter 9 of your textbook: tragedy of
the commons or the commons dilemma, resource dilemma, and prisoner’s dilemma.

problems within a specific culture. How did these problems originate, and what
can we do to improve or eliminate them? What recommendations do you have?
Please provide a minimum of two recommendations.
