[...] after watching HBO’s hit series for six seasons, we’ve found some striking similarities.Many in power turn a blind eye to the existential threat of climate change.After the 2008 financial crisis, many Americans naturally thought of bankers as villains.[...] Westeros shows the trouble of a world without financiers or transparent lending — debts forever build for governments, while few citizens are able to invest in themselves.During 300 years in the United States, people got indoor plumbing, electric lights and cars.“The existence of these weapons should spur an offsetting arms race,” says Lyman Stone, an economist who has written extensively about the show.No one appears to have mass produced Valyrian steel or dragonglass — two materials that can kill the ghostly White Walkers from the North.Barry Weingast, a political scientist at Stanford University and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, found that the poorest 10 percent of nations experience a coup, on average, nearly every year.There’s an army of ice zombies coming with the White Walkers, but most of the lords and ladies of Westeros can’t be bothered.Economists call this a “collective action problem” — a situation in which everyone faces the same threat, but no one individual has an incentive to address or even admit the problem.Charli Carpenter, a political scientist at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, has called Game of Thrones “a collective action story.”“Planetary forces are moving slowly but inexorably toward climatic catastrophe as the infighting among kings and queens distracts them from the bigger picture,” she wrote in the journal Foreign Affairs in 2012.
