This volume on applications of behavioral economics concepts and tools 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 writng 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. Edited by leaders in behavioral economics, the volumes on theories and applications deliver the reasonably comprehensive, critical, up-to-date, and accessible review of the field that has always been missing.

Key Features
