Tragedy of the Commons is one classic example. Another is the Prisoner's Dilemma, which is sort of the inverse of the same problem. The TotC is a social trap, and PD is a social fence.

I wonder if either of you have had a chance to read my series, "The Fraternal Dilemma"? I think you both might enjoy it:

Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
