The debate about behavioral economics - the incorporation of insights from psychology into economics - is often framed as a question about the foundational assumptions of economic models. This paper presents a more pragmatic perspective on behavioral economics that focuses on its value for improving empirical predictions and policy decisions. I discuss three ways in which behavioral economics can contribute to public policy: by offering new policy tools, improving predictions about the effects of existing policies, and generating new welfare implications. I illustrate these contributions using applications to retirement savings, labor supply, and neighborhood choice. Behavioral models provide new tools to change behaviors such as savings rates and new counterfactuals to estimate the effects of policies such as income taxation. Behavioral models also provide new prescriptions for optimal policy that can be characterized in a non-paternalistic manner using methods analogous to those in ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! In the past decades, behavioral economics has become an influential and important field of economics. Interest in behavioral economics derives from unease with standard economic models that are based on restrictive assumptions, which confine the nature of human motivation. Although Adam Smith, the founding father of modern economics, had highlighted the multitude of psychological motives that drive human behavior, and despite the fact that many influential economists thereafter believed in tenets of modern behavioral economics, the homo economicus assumption became prevalent, until this construct was challenged by compelling evidence on social, cognitive and emotional factors that drive decision-making and social interaction. Since human interaction is germane to labor markets, one would expect behavioral economics to be highly relevant for labor economics. This paper gauges whether and how behavioral economics has left its mark on labor economics, considers the timing

The recent news about the decision by Publicis and Omincom not to merge ten months after the announcement# last July might end up benefiting clients even as it is an example of what agencies typically counsel clients against: lack of meetings of the minds. Whether it was a battle for control#, settling the issue of appeasing clients#, a clashing of cultures#, or the realization that big is not the same as effective#, the different interpretations remind us that we constantly seek a better understanding of human decision making. Everything would go according to plan, if it just werent for the people. People are complex, and we live in complex times. Collaboration might be a desirable trait, it is however still an aspirational goal rather than a reality. As behavioral economics teaches us, to design tools and programs that help them do what they already want to do, we need to...
This behavioral economics podcast continues our series about the five senses. Last week, I talked about the sense of sight. This week Im talking about the sense of smell. No matter what type of business you have, these episodes will apply to you. The senses are all powerful and create memories the brain uses to make decisions, and decision making is a big part of successful business. Understanding how our brains use past experience to interpret the world around us is super important when it comes to understanding how to integrate stimuli from our senses in business. We have all experienced a certain scent bringing back a memory. Today, I talk about the sense of smell and how awareness of it can help make your business better. ...
In this form, drawing on behavioral economics, the nudge is more generally applied to influence behaviour. One of the most frequently cited examples of a nudge is the etching of the image of a housefly into the mens room urinals at Amsterdams Schiphol Airport, which is intended to "improve the aim".[16]. Nudging techniques aim to use judgmental heuristics to our advantage. In other words, a nudge alters the environment so that when heuristic, or System 1, decision-making is used, the resulting choice will be the most positive or desired outcome.[42] An example of such a nudge is switching the placement of junk food in a store, so that fruit and other healthy options are located next to the cash register, while junk food is relocated to another part of the store.[43]. In 2008, the United States appointed Sunstein, who helped develop the theory, as administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.[41][44][45]. Notable applications of nudge theory include the formation of the ...

I was lucky enough to be finishing my postdoc at Penn and starting my faculty position when the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics was just taking off. It was a great training opportunity for me to get involved with projects related to behavioral change and public health. My first project was an intervention in Peru to encourage households to participate in an indoor residual spray campaign to combat Chagas disease. Part of your current work focuses on vaccine acceptance. With the anti-vaccine movement on the rise, could you describe the ways in which you think behavioral economics interventions might increase vaccine acceptance among parents? Vaccine acceptance is a topic where behavioral insights can make a big difference. We can inform our policy interventions (e.g., the laws governing how parents can get exemptions from mandated school-entry immunizations) by thinking about social norms, defaults, and present bias. Clinical interventions (e.g., how a health care provider ...

This article examines the results of single-equation regression models of the determinants of alcohol consumption patterns among college students modeling a rich variety of covariates including gender, family and peer drinking, tenure, personality, risk perception, time preferences, and age of drinking onset. The results demonstrate very weak income effects and very strong effects of personality, peer drinking (in particular closest friend), time preferences, and other substance use. The task of future research is to verify these results and assess causality using more detailed methods (JEL D12, I31). Copyright (c) 2008 Western Economic Association International.

This paper considers the use of trimmed means as monthly indicators of Japanese core inflation. As in Bryan, Cecchetti, and Wiggins (1997) for the United States, and Roger (1997) for New Zealand, we find that trimming the tails of the price change distribution substantially improves high-frequency estimates of Japanese core inflation. These estimators yield efficiency gains of roughly two-thirds over the Japanese CPI. While we find that trimming approximately 35 percent from each tail of the price change distribution produces the most efficient monthly estimator over the full 27-year period, a range of trimmed-mean estimators (between 21 percent and the median price change) provide nearly the same signal. Moreover, we find that these estimators are superior to the standard monthly core inflation estimator in Japan, the CPI less fresh food. At lower frequencies (12-month percent changes and beyond), the differences between the candidate estimators were found to be small, and the trimmed ...

Most diseases people die from are those borne of bad choices. Whether the decision is to have unprotected sex, smoke, drink and drive, not save for retirement, or to eat fries with that burger, risky decisions permeate our lives, sometimes with disastrous consequences, which is why researchers gathered on campus Sept. 22-23 to better understand risk-taking.. At the Third Biennial Urie Bronfenbrenner Conference, "The Neuroscience of Risky Decision Making," neuroscientists, neuroeconomists and social scientists explored scientific theories about the brain mechanisms underlying risky decision-making, paving the way for translation of basic science into policy and practice.. "From neurons to basic psychological processes, such as memory and meaning, to complex social and economic behavior, we need to build a dialogue across disciplines," said Valerie Reyna, professor of human development in the College of Human Ecology and co-director for Cornells Center for Behavioral Economics and Decision ...
Brain images during money-transfer experiments show "rich" participants prefer to see others get financial windfall. The human brain is a big believer in equality""and a team of scientists from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, has become the first to gather the images to prove it.. Specifically, the team found that the reward centers in the human brain respond more strongly when a poor person receives a financial reward than when a rich person does. The surprising thing? This activity pattern holds true even if the brain being looked at is in the rich persons head, rather than the poor persons.. These conclusions, and the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies that led to them, are described in the February 25 issue of the journal Nature.. "This is the latest picture in our gallery of human nature," says Colin Camerer, the Robert Kirby Professor of Behavioral Economics at Caltech and one of the papers coauthors. "Its an ...
I teach Henrichs work in my behavioral economics classes, and I must have missed the part where he speculates that Western society is an outlier.. The Ultimatum Game has been played all over the world. When its played in industrialized societies, the results show quite strongly that people reject low offers (though the definition of "low" varies a little, but not by a lot), and people are willing to reject large sums of money in countries like Indonesia and Slovenia, where researchers can afford to pay what counts as large sums of money.. Henrich et al ran variants of the game in many non-industrialized societies, and found much more heterogeneity of behavior. Yes, the Machiguenga acted much more like homo economicus than anyone else, but they were just one group. There were also numerous societies in which people offered more than 50%--and some in which such offers were rejected.. The most parsimonious interpretation of this body of work is that culture can greatly affect ultimatum game play, ...
Sense of ownership is often advocated as an argument for local participation within the epistemic development and nature conservation communities. Stakeholder participation in initiating, designing or implementing institutions is claimed to establish a sense of ownership among the stakeholders and subsequently improve the intended outcomes of the given institution. Theoretical and empirical justi cations of the hypothesis remain scarce. A better understanding of the effects of local participation can motivate more extensive and stronger participation of local stakeholders and improve institutional performance. This paper applies theories from psychology and behavioral economics to better understand sense of ownership. The empirical investigation is a framed fi eld experiment, in the context of tropical forest conservation and payments for environmental services in Tanzania. The results lend little support to the hypothesis in this context. The participation treatment in the experiment is weak, ...

Fund staff will first convene a multistakeholder advisory group to establish criteria for identifying high-leverage opportunities and prioritize ideas for in-depth study. The first projects will likely focus on: 1) new approaches for using information technology to engage consumers in their care; 2) consumer and provider incentives designed around the principles of behavioral economics; and 3) "frugal innovations" from around the world that the U.S. might adopt. Staff also will explore the establishment of an incubator network of health care organizations willing to pilot-test ideas the Fund has identified and vetted ...
If a large majority of the other experiment subjects respond the way I do, can we infer from the experiment that all the "unincentivized" responses that pollsters have collected on the belief that humans visited the Moon in 1969 are survey "artifacts," & that the appearance of widespread public acceptance of this "fact" is "illusory" (Bullock, Gerber, Hill & Huber 2015)? As any card-carrying member of the "Chicago School of Behavioral Economics, Incentive-Compatible Design Division" will tell you the answer is, "Hell no, you cant!" Under these circumstances, we should anticipate that a great many subjects who didnt find the presented evidence convincing will have said they did in order to earn money by supplying the response they anticipated the experimenters would pay them for.. Imagine further that the researchers offered the subjects the opportunity, after they completed the portion of the experiment for which they were offered incentives for "correct" answers, to indicate whether they ...
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Email. Matthew W. Johnson, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His behavioral economics research has applied delay discounting and demand analyses to addiction. Highly cited early contributions include validation of human delay discounting methods and approaches for evaluating discounting data. His research has indicated that delay discounting is a fundamental process underlying addiction, and that delay discounting of condom use is a critical variable influencing sexual HIV risk. Dr. Johnson has also conducted human studies determining the acute effects of numerous drugs: cocaine, methamphetamine, nicotine, caffeine, GHB, alcohol, triazolam, ramelteon, psilocybin, dextromethorphan, and salvinorin A. Recent research has shown that administration of drugs associated with sexual risk behavior (e.g., cocaine, alcohol) increases discounting of sexual outcomes and sexual risk. He has conducted ...
School cafeterias that dont accept cash could inadvertently promote unhealthy food to students, according to new research.. To speed up long lunch lines and enable cleaner accounting, about 80 percent of the nations elementary and secondary schools have implemented debit systems that parents can add money to at any time, according to David Just and Brian Wansink, professors at the Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics in Child Nutrition Programs.. [related]. "There may be a reason for concern about the popularity of cashless systems," say the researchers. "Debit cards have been shown to induce more frivolous purchases or greater overall spending by adults and college students.". As reported in the journal Obesity, Just and Wansink compared purchases at school cafeterias that use debit-only systems with those that accept debit or cash. They found that students at debit/cash cafeterias consumed about 721 calories compared with 752 calories at debit-only schools.. For non-healthy food items ...
In a separate post, I want to consider something that the column mentions in passing - that, according to the sections backers, it is merely "trying to facilitate choice - even if patients opt for expensive life-prolonging care." Ill try to find a moment to post on what I see as the relationship between that and the current love affair (I share the love, in part, to be sure) with behavioral economics. In one sense, in other words, section 1233 can be understood as a Nudgy move to reset the default rules. The question then becomes, is it merely trying to set the default rules for addressing a topic that people would rather skip addressing - end of life issues, living will issues, health care directives - or is it a nudge for getting people, including ones now terminally ill, to shift their social default settings on whether or not to consume expensive resources, while putting it in the context of seemingly making your own decision about it? They are, clearly, two quite different propositions - ...
Lack of access to financial services is still an economic barrier for many households and small businesses around the world. Based on the global Findex database in 2014, only 34% of people in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to a financial account and less than 16% use formal savings and borrowings. Similar data for other developing regions has emerged leading to the use of microfinance tools to expand financial inclusion globally. But, promoting the best financial tools for low-income households is very complicated, since one must consider the variety of outflow and inflow categories in their financial diaries. It raises the demand for in-depth research on these micro economies..

Methods Relevant experience of the authors and insights from the literature were combined to identify key issues and propose methodological improvements. Specific examples regarding adherence to warfarin are provided.. Results Several new approaches to trial design can be effectively applied in the context of medication adherence. These include tailored intervention strategies and sequential multiple assignment randomized trial (SMART) designs. Read More. ...
Recently, psychologists studying cognitive processes and personality have increasingly benefitted from the wealth of theory, methodology, and decision making paradigms used in economics and game theory. Similarly, for the economists, personality traits and basic cognitive processes offer a set of coherent explanatory constructs in economic behaviour. Given the debate on preference invariance and behavioural consistency across contexts and domains, the papers in this topic shed light on the existence and effect of stable sets of idiosyncratic features on economic decision-making.

Since 1990 the gap of MMR between industrialized and developing countries widened and shows principal differences of health care services -accessibility and quality- and women s socioeconomic status. Increasing income reductions and poverty are responsible for malnutrition, excessive work, low access to antenatal care and other risks for pregnant women in developing countries. The risks of dying from pregnancy-related causes is high in developing countries- one in 48 versus one in 1800 in developed ones.. Poverty is pointed out as the principal cause of the high maternal mortality rate in developing countries. Worldwide it is recognized that poverty is still increasing, especially in developing countries and will continue to increase due to the economic model. As a consequence, women s health will continue to deteriorate especially reproductive health. It should become more difficult in low-income countries to meet the Beijing first objective ...

Official waste audit should be undertaken and training of environmental and waste auditors should be undertaken. Implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the WM plan must be thought of along with the policy formulation. Professionals should be consulted or employed during the formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation processes. Consideration for environmental issues should be the major factor that managers should use while choosing a management style. Professionals must be assigned to monitor waste in Facilities to be able to discover lapses. Monitoring of the Wastes using a cradle-to-grave method is the generally practiced and acceptable norm that must be followed. Waste that can be recycled are generated within many facilities and segregation at source should be made obligatory to be able to estimate the various wastes categories generated within a system especially the recyclable portion. Various methods of waste recycling (like waste-to-energy, LFG exploitation and Organic ...

The article is a perspective on utilization of microorganisms and chemosignals in studying human economic behavior. Research in biological roots of economic development has already confirmed that parasitic pressure influenced the creation and development of cultural norms and institutions. However, other effects of microorganisms on human groups and individual decision-making and behavior are heavily understudied. The perspective discusses how parasitic infections, sexually transmitted organisms and microbiota (i.e., "human holobiont") could causally influence risk-seeking behavior, impulsivity, social dominance, empathy, political views and gender differences. As a case study, the parasite Toxoplasma gondii and its influence on economic preferences, personal characteristics and human appearance are examined. I also briefly review how chemosignals influence decision-making, particularly in the social preferences domain. I mention some predictions that arise from the paradigm of economic ...
1P0D: Flexible adaptations in the structure of the tRNA-modifying enzyme tRNA-guanine transglycosylase and their implications for substrate selectivity, reaction mechanism and structure-based drug design
Statler makes the correct point. Neoclassical economics, or, better, the broader field of todays mainstream economics, is about methodology, not about conclusions and policy implications.. Economics should be about learning how people behave in economic decision-making, about being able to describe the implications of these decisions, and draw inference for what-if scenarios, so that we are able to recommend policies that are in line with what we want to achieve. And the only way to make such inference is, as Becker puts it, to "tie our hands" with methodology.. Heterodox economists (at least most of the "left-heterodox") are completely wrong at least in two ways. First, they confuse this methodology with free-market argument. You feel that market imperfections exist? Build them into the model, verify it with data, and then youll see there may be space for governmental action. The same about limited rationality of agents, informational advantage etc. The fact that the models often find the ...
is the standard deviation, and N is the number of data points. Note that in computing the skewness, the s is computed with N in the denominator rather than N - 1. The above formula for skewness is referred to as the Fisher-Pearson coefficient of skewness. Many software programs actually compute the adjusted Fisher-Pearson coefficient of skewness \[ G_{1} = \frac{\sqrt{N(N-1)}}{N-2} \frac{\sum_{i=1}^{N}(Y_{i} - \bar{Y})^{3}/N} {s^{3}} \] This is an adjustment for sample size. The adjustment approaches 1 as N gets large. For reference, the adjustment factor is 1.49 for N = 5, 1.19 for N = 10, 1.08 for N = 20, 1.05 for N = 30, and 1.02 for N = 100. The skewness for a normal distribution is zero, and any symmetric data should have a skewness near zero. Negative values for the skewness indicate data that are skewed left and positive values for the skewness indicate data that are skewed right. By skewed left, we mean that the left tail is long relative to the right tail. Similarly, skewed right means ...
We find that the outpatient care subsidy does not have a significant impact in the total area. However, the effects vary by regional income level: while the outpatient care subsidy decreases the number of admissions in low-income areas, it increases those in high-income areas. In addition, as expected, when the subsidy reduces the number of admissions, the number of emergency and ACSC admissions decreases, and when it increases the number of admissions, those for non-emergency and admissions for diagnosis increase.. It may be not surprising that the own-price effect is not significant because our admission data constitute patients with acute conditions, whose demand for inpatient services is probably less sensitive to price change.. Our results lead us to conclude that outpatient and inpatient services are substitutes in low-income areas but complements in high-income ones. Thus, even within the same country and time period, the relationship between inpatient and outpatient services is sensitive ...
The value of Canadian wholesale trade unexpectedly dropped in September after two months of increases, pulled down by fewer sales in the personal goods and food sectors, data from Statistics Canada showed on Tuesday.. The 1.2 per cent decline from the previous month was far short of economists forecasts for an increase of 0.3 per cent. Stripping out the effects of price changes, volumes decreased by 1.1 per cent.. Still, it was only the second time this year that the value of wholesale trade fell, and sales were up 1.5 per cent in the third quarter. The strong pace of economic growth Canada saw in the first half of the year is expected to slow in the last six months of 2017.. Sales declined in five out of seven sectors in September, accounting for 66 per cent of wholesale trade. The drop was led by a 4.8 per cent decrease in the personal and household goods sector, amid fewer sales of textiles, clothing and footwear.. The food, beverage and tobacco sector fell by 2.2 per cent, taking it to its ...

Before 1980, rates were generally well below 10%. They have since doubled or tripled in many countries, and in almost half of the OECD, 50% or more of the population is overweight. A key risk factor for numerous chronic diseases, obesity is a major public health concern. This book contributes to evidence-based policy making by exploring multiple dimensions of the obesity problem. It examines the scale and characteristics of the epidemic, the respective roles and influence of market forces and governments, and the impact of interventions. It outlines an economic approach to the prevention of chronic diseases that provides novel insights relative to a more traditional public health approach. The analysis was undertaken by the OECD, partly in collaboration with the World Health Organization. The main chapters are complemented by special contributions from health and obesity experts, including Marc Suhrcke, Tim Lobstein, Donald Kenkel and Francesco Branca. a valuable set of results and suggestions about

O2O (online-to-offline and vice-versa) is an integral part of the omnichannel strategy. Amazon Go in the US and Myntras brand store in India are classic examples of engaging with the customers across channels seamlessly.. Big Data for Consumers. In the omnichannel retail world, fragmented analytics will not suffice. A natural expectation with technology would be to gather, organize and analyze all kinds of data, namely, transactional, behavioral, price changes, store staff performance, footfalls, stock management, campaigns, and loyalty etc. across channels. With fragmented analytics, data to action analytics may take several days, causing business loss to the retailers.. In order to reduce time taken to arrive at actions, industry is moving towards predictive and prescriptive analytics with actionable insights from traditional diagnostic analytics For e.g., if the performance of a store is going down and it is less likely to hit the monthly target, the analytics tool should be able to make the ...

CCM creates and maintains cross-supplier catalogs. It provides the functionality to enhance catalog data, so that casual end-users can quickly and easily find the correct products or services. CCM includes import utilities, which facilitate catalog updates from a simple modification, such as a price change on a single product from one supplier, to a full catalog refresh. A rollback feature allows administrators to undo improperly applied changes to the catalog. While the version of Clarus E-Procurement used during the pilot program had an efficient and functionally rich user interface, end-user feedback led to an improved second-generation product now being implemented at MasterCard. This includes a new user interface that is at once more aesthetically pleasing and more intuitive. Now, instructors spend more time teaching users about process change and less on the product itself. Training sessions last an hour, including a question and answer period, for 20 to 25 people. In addition to these ...
The World Bank has also attempted to calculate, as part of its Global Economic Prospects series, the expected benefits from trade liberalization. In Global Economic Prospects 2002, it concluded that faster integration through lowering barriers to merchandise trade would increase growth and provide some $1.5 trillion of additional cumulative income to developing countries over the period 2005 2015. Liberalization of services in developing countries could provide even greater gains perhaps as much as four times larger than this amount. [The results also] show that labor s share of national income would rise throughout the developing world. 6 The studies by Brown, Deardoff, and Stern, and the World Bank are based on computable general equilibrium models, in which economies are defined by a set of interconnected markets. When prices change in this case because of a change in tariffs national product markets are assumed to adjust to restore equilibrium. Since economies are themselves connected ...

Fabio Angelini De Simone & Partners Fashion and Design rights How an empirical/economic approach may change the way the law sees them
I have a love-hate relationship with the idea of neuroeconomics. The materialist neuroscience side of my brain likes the idea that behavior - even behavior resulting from emergent properties of complex networks - is quantifiable and predictable. Its only predictable if you know all the input parameters (and you cant know that Subject X has an aversion to green for reasons that have something to do with a lollipop at Coney Island when he was six). But the central fallacy of economics has been the "rational actor" paradigm, which is based on the assumption that individuals make rational choices when it comes to money and will always behave to maximize their own economic interests. They dont. Economist with a clue understand this. Really smart economists are trying to understand the underlying why and how. Lets start with the experimental result from psychology showing that humans are more likely to make a bad economic decision out of fear of loss than they are like to make that decision out of ...

The highway illustration actually has the very same dramatic set up: the protagonists path is blocked, creating a dilemma - but in the case the action is muddied. Instead of one protagonist, we have four; the effort of figuring out which one to focus on takes attention away from the main point. The organically occurring perspective lines that in Ambush indicated both the heros path and the waiting insurgents are missing here, so they have been replaced with the pointing finger, the stakes in the ground and distant figures, which require too much cognitive effort to decypher. And, unlike the evocative rendering of the tree lined street in the winter gloaming, the setting is rather banal, and the various elements seem to be pasted on, not part of a coherently imagined world ...
... is the study of goods and services and the production, distribution and consumptions of them. The study of economics looks at behaviour of specific entities and how they interact and work in different economies. There are two distinct ways of studying economics which include, microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics looks at the behavior of elements in the economy and their interactions. Macroeconomics analyzes the economy as a whole and the issues which affect it. The issues looked at in macroeconomics are unemployment, inflation, economic growth and monetary and fiscal policy.. Production is the process of changing inputs into outputs. These outputs created can be sold for a profit. This uses inputs to create a product or service for exchange or direct use. Production is measured as a rate of output per period of time. Managers will balance production to ensure maximum return through a supply and demand assessment. Opportunity cost is the cost of production of a specific ...
The Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation Center for Economics of Breastfeeding (LRF CEB) was jointly established by the University of Zurich (UZH) and the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation (FLRF) to improve global knowledge about the causes and consequences of breastfeeding. It is the worlds first research centre dedicated to the behavioural economics of breastfeeding.. According to the World Health Organization, globally just 38% of infants age zero to six months are exclusively breastfed. There is no single, simple answer to this low percentage; the factors surrounding womens decisions and abilities to breastfeed are myriad and complex. At the mircro level, there are different personal and physical circumstances. At the macro level, there are diverse cultural and political backdrops.. Learning how these variables converge and produce different economic effects is what researchers are focusing on at the LRF CEB, located at the UZH Department of Economics..
