This literature summary of the conceptual foundations underlying behavioral economics is written by and for economists. Its authors share a belief in behavioral economics enriching, rather than to destroying or replacing, standard economics. Their authoritative perspectives give them an edge not enjoyed by psychologists writing about economics: a strong grasp of the value that insights gained from psychology give to economists. By increasing the usefulness of their analyses, their investigations enrich standard models of economics. The volume offers critical perspectives on theoretical work within behavioral economics, delivering the reasonably comprehensive, critical, up-to-date, and accessible review of the field that has always been missing.

- Designed for economists already convinced of the benefits of behavioral economics as well as mainstream economists who feel threatened by new developments in behavioral economics
