Handbook of Behavioral Economics: Foundations and Applications presents behavioral economics concepts and tools that are written by, and for, economists. Its authors share a belief that revolves around enriching behavioral economics rather than destroying or replacing standard models. Their authoritative perspectives give them an edge not enjoyed by psychologists writing about economics. Specific chapters in this release include topics covering Personal finance, Corporate finance, Public finance, Asset Markets, Macroeconomics, Industrial Organization, Development Economics, and Labor.
