Perspectives in Behavioral Economics and the Economics of Behavior

Aim & scope

This multi-disciplinary series explores the behavior of economic agents in the real world. Its aim is to encourage and disseminate exemplary interdisciplinary research which demonstrates how economic and socio-economic behavior emerges from psychological, institutional, and social antecedents and goes on to influence the real-world economy. The series focuses particularly on modern problems and emergent research in behavioral economics. This includes institutional design, governance, nudging, market inefficiencies, heuristics and decision-making, preference formation, framing, causality versus correlation in model building, loss aversion, herding, emotions and decision-making, as well as the importance of trust, altruism, and fairness in decision-making. It takes account of traditional economic models but seeks to advance the field by integrating perspectives from other fields, including experimental economics, economic psychology, neuroscience, and more broadly from the social sciences, particularly sociology, political science and law.

Perspectives in Behavioral Economics and the Economics of Behavior

This series also addresses the context of decisions, and in this sense emphasizes the role of institutions, culture, and sociological factors, when investigating the 'black box' of the household, the firm, and other decision-making organization as they impact incentives and the economic environment. Moreover, the series also encourages research that enriches our understanding of benchmarks for best practice behavior, building upon insights from behavioral economics. The series also focuses particularly on empirically based informed research and real-world application, inclusive of the theoretical contributions.
