I believe there is a discussion in either Last Hours or The Prophet's Way about a tribal culture where sports played by children are not played until one team wins but rather until both teams have scored the same number of points, goals, etc. This was given as an example of certain cutures where cutthroat competition is not held to be an ideal in society. Does anybody know where I can find that story (which book, which chapter)? Maybe it's not in either book and I just heard Thom talk about it on the air. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks.

I can't recommend any particular book, however, in reciprocal economic systems, cooperation rather than competition is the norm. In many Native American societies, sharing was the rewarded model in childhood and a behavior learned from watching adults
