Explanation:
strike a bargain (idiom)
Reach an agreement, as in They finally struck a bargain after weeks of wrangling over who would get what.

El autor está hablando del "ego" (yo) y el "alter" (alter ego - el otro yo). Estos son términos de psicología, no sociología propiamente tal.

También puedes decir "álter ego"

"...la teoría del intercambio, que asume que el yo y el otro yo generalmente pueden llegar a felices acuerdos para su mutua conveniencia."

O, SI PREFIERES: "llegar a acuerdos satisfactorios para los intereses de ambos".
