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 ...

We have announced our second Call for Proposals in the field of behavioral economics. Were actively seeking ideas that will help us to better understand how to discourage the consumption of low-value health services - those that provide more harm than benefit or which provide only marginal health benefits. In addition to improving health outcomes, this knowledge could contribute to lowering health care costs for us all.. Behavioral economics is an area of study by which Ive personally grown increasingly intrigued and in which the Foundation has recently begun to invest. We all know, for example, that we need to exercise, eat right and be actively engaged in our own health care. But we dont always do what we know we should do; knowing the right decision to make does not guarantee that we make that decision. The goal of behavioral economics is to uncover insights that could enable people to make better - more rational - choices for their health.. Its not a given that the behavioral ...
Modern economic theory rests on the basic assumption that agents choices are guided by preferences. The question of where such preferences might have come from has traditionally been ignored or viewed agnostically. The biological approach to economic behavior addresses the issue of the origins of economic preferences explicitly. This approach assumes that economic preferences are shaped by the forces of natural selection. For example, an important theoretical insight delivered thus far by this approach is that individuals ought to be more risk averse to aggregate than to idiosyncratic risk. Additionally the approach has delivered an evolutionary basis for hedonic and adaptive utility and an evolutionary rationale for

The high discard rate of pediatric donor hearts presents a major challenge for children awaiting heart transplantation. Recent literature identifies several factors that contribute to the disparities in pediatric donor heart usage, including regulatory oversight, the absence of guidelines on pediatric donor heart acceptance, and variation among transplant programs. However, a likely additional contributor to this issue are the behavioral factors influencing transplant team decisions in donor offer scenarios, a topic that has not yet been studied in detail. Behavioral economics and decision psychology provide an excellent foundation for investigating decision-making in the pediatric transplant setting, offering key insights into the behavior of transplant professionals. We conducted a systematic review of published literature in pediatric heart transplant related to behavioral economics and the psychology of decision-making. In this review, we draw on paradigms from these two domains in order to ...
Policymakers, employers, insurance companies, researchers, and health care providers have developed an increasing interest in using principles from behavioral economics and psychology to persuade people to change their health-related behaviors, lifestyles, and habits. In this article, we examine how principles from behavioral economics and psychology are being used to nudge people (the public, patients, or health care providers) toward particular decisions or behaviors related to health or health care, and we identify the ethically relevant dimensions that should be considered for the utilization of each principle..

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 ...

Perhaps it would help to choose a more mundane example (I really didnt mean for nuclear war or climate change to become the focus - although they are certainly worthy topics to discuss). A company is considering the launch of a new product - many uncertainties are present. Do we believe that evolutionary processes have prepared the decision makers to assess the risks well?. My answer is that evolution is very unlikely to have worked in this way (no, I cant prove that, but my layman understanding of evolution is that it takes too long to have accomplished what is required). Instead, I believe many of the biases that Kahneman and others have investigated are likely to be relevant in a case like this. Gigerenzers claim that decision makers are sophisticated assessors of risks like this seems unwarranted to me. The exception would be if a decision maker had faced many decisions like this in the past - sort of like Gladwells (Blink) examples where emergency responders act using heuristics - honed ...

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..

Spend some time with the Society for Medical Decision Making, and shared decisions starts to seem less a clinical ideal and more an offshoot of picking a monthly cell phone plan. The fine line between motivating and manipulating behavior (albeit sometimes unintentionally) starts to blur.. At the groups recent annual meeting in Chicago, the differing sensibilities of medical and marketplace ethics were in plain view on a panel entitled (with a nod to the Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein behavioral economics best-seller), From a Nudge to a Shove: How Big a Role for Shared Decision Making?. Peter Ubel, a physician and a professor of marketing and public policy at Duke University, told how some free-market theorists have defined away, overweight. Since people know what causes them to put on pounds, goes this reasoning, the weight they are must be the weight they rationally decided to be. (Shades of Dr. Pangloss!). Unfortunately, eating decisions are not purely rational. Eat in a large ...
New York Times best seller. From the author of The Power of Habit comes a fascinating book that explores the science of productivity, and why managing how you think is more important than what you think - with an appendix of real-world lessons to apply to your life. At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key productivity concepts - from motivation and goal setting to focus and decision making - that explain why some people and companies get so much done.. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics - as well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airplane pilots, and Broadway songwriters - this painstakingly researched book explains that the most productive people, companies, and organizations dont merely act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways.. A young woman drops out of a PhD program and starts playing poker. By training herself to envision contradictory ...
Anaerobic digestion technology addresses environmental issues of waste disposal and greenhouse gas emission reduction. This paper examines attitudes toward adoption of this conservation technology on dairy farms. To specify an appropriate dependent variable without a large number of adopters, an ordered probit model is constructed. The empirical analysis uses data from a 2006 survey of Pacific Northwest dairy farms. Aggregate variables are constructed based on behavioral economics and conservation adoption literature. Variables include private and social costs, social motives, capacity, innovation receptivity, and opportunity costs, most of which are found to be highly related to the decision to seriously consider adoption.

Recent studies in behavioral economics and neuroeconomics have revealed that emotion affects impulsivity in intertemporal choice. We examined the roles of socio-emotional status (i.e., perceived stress, depression, quality of sleep, loneliness) in temporal discounting behavior by Japanese non-smokers in a generation-specific manner (20 - 70 s) with a relatively large sample size (N = 3450). We observed that 1) both men and women are the most impulsive in their 60 s; 2) education has a negative impact on impulsivity in men aged 40 - 49 and women aged 50 - 59; 3) perceived stress has a negative impact on impulsivity in men aged 60 - 69; and 4) sleeplessness has negative and positive impacts on impulsivity in men aged 40 - 49 and women aged 30 - 39, respectively. Biological and social factors underlying observed findings are discussed.

The rise of behavioral economics has sparked a debate about whether the conventional economic models used in antitrust analyses - which rely on assumptions of rational action - adequately account for real-world behavior, says Elizabeth Bailey of NERA Economic Consulting Inc.
In psychology, a dual process theory provides an account of how thought can arise in two different ways, or as a result of two different processes. Often, the two processes consist of an implicit (automatic), unconscious process and an explicit (controlled), conscious process. Verbalized explicit processes or attitudes and actions may change with persuasion or education; though implicit process or attitudes usually take a long amount of time to change with the forming of new habits. Dual process theories can be found in social, personality, cognitive, and clinical psychology. It has also been linked with economics via prospect theory and behavioral economics, and increasingly in sociology through cultural analysis. The foundations of dual process theory likely comes from William James. He believed that there were two different kinds of thinking: associative and true reasoning. James theorized that empirical thought was used for things like art and design work. For James, images and thoughts ...
Suzanne H. Mitchell, Ph.D., is a Professor at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in the Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, with secondary appointments in Psychiatry and in the Oregon Institute for Occupational health Science. She obtained her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees at the University of Hull, England and her Ph.D. at SUNY-Stony Brook, USA. Her dissertation focused on the economics of foraging behavior of rats, examining the role of the energetic costs and benefits in feeding. Her committee was chaired by Howard Rachlin, whose influence made her sensitive to the role of temporal costs as well as energetic costs in determining the value of food rewards. During a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago, Dr. Mitchell worked with Harriet de Wit, Ph.D. using behavioral economics as an explanation for use of alcohol, nicotine/cigarettes, and amphetamine in humans. During that time she also began collaborating with Jerry Richards, Ph.D. on delay discounting studies with rats. ...

This paper describes a new multi-player computer game, Colored Trails (CT), which may be played by people, computers and heterogeneous groups. CT was designed to enable investigation of properties of decision-making strategies in multi-agent situations of varying complexity. The paper presents the results of an initial series of experiments of CT games in which agents choices affected not only their own outcomes but also the outcomes of other agents. It compares the behavior of people with that of computer agents deploying a variety of decision-making strategies. The results align with behavioral economics studies in showing that people cooperate when they play and that factors of social dependency influence their levels of cooperation. Preliminary results indicate that people design agents to play strategies closer to game-theory predictions, yielding lower utility. Additional experiments show that such agents perform worse than agents designed to make choices that resemble human cooperative ...
Here, we combined a perceptual decision task and an auction procedure inspired by behavioral economics (37, 38) to investigate how monetary incentives influence confidence. In addition to replicating important statistical features common to most of the dominant models of confidence formation (43), we reveal and dissociate two effects of monetary incentives on confidence accuracy.. The first effect is a motivational effect of incentives: In line with theories of rational decision-making and motivation, incentivizing confidence judgments improves metacognitive sensitivity. This means that high (or low) confidence is more closely associated with correct (or incorrect) decisions when confidence reports are incentivized, regardless of the valence or magnitude of the incentive. This extends a recent study reporting a similar effect of incentivization on discrimination (a measure closely related to sensitivity, assessing how confidence discriminates between correct and incorrect answers), but limited ...

We are planning a study to improve health outcomes among patients with HIV/AIDS using insights from behavioral economics and financial incentives. We will conduct a survey with HIV/AIDS patients at Ponce Clinic (Infectious Disease Program of Grady Memorial Hospital, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA). The patients will be low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and possessing varying degrees of medication adherence. We want to better understand how this particular population would react to commitment devices designed to increase medication adherence. We will survey participants to see if they would prefer more commitment, in the form of a Take-Medication-Get-Paid plan; less commitment, in the form of an Attend-Clinic-Get-Paid plan; or if they would prefer to designate their own levels of commitment ...

The consumer price index for Germany measures the average price change for all goods and services purchased by households for consumption purposes. These include for example food, clothing and motor cars as well as rentals, cleaning services or repair. Following the domestic concept all expenditures spent in Germany are taken into consideration, for example besides the expenditures of single-person households, married couples, families or couples of pensioners also the expenditures of foreign tourists. The price change of the consumer price index on same month a year earlier or rather to the previous year is colloquially also called inflation rate.. More ,. ...
