Not to over-state things, but there is one guy, Richard Sennett, who has thought more about cooperation than anyone else in shoes. He has a trilogy called The Architecture of Cooperation. This is also the title of a long (over and hour) UTube video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcXE4NEgLn8 that covers all of this fellow's work in the Trilogy and much more. The video is from 2012, a lecture at Harvard School of Design.
When one steps back from Sennett's work, it all seems obvious. Each little piece seems like common sense: Of course, I feel that way! It is when all the pieces of cooperation that we all know are assembled together, we see that the structure of society and the construction industry has a long way to go.
