This is somewhat surprising since an important problem which transition management needs to tackle is inertia or resistance to change. Transition policy needs to account for the bounded rationality and social interaction of agents so as to arrive at a more realistic view of the limits and opportunities for realizing a transition. System failures like lock-in, unpredictability and surprise in innovation systems, and network interaction between agents have received some attention, but their behavioral underpinnings can be improved. The identification of relevant stakeholders in transition processes and their unique behavioral features is crucial for understanding how to stimulate transitions. In this paper we investigate opportunities to integrate various theories and disciplinary views on behavior into thinking about sustainability transitions with the aim to arrive at recommendations for more effective policies. For this purpose, we combine insights from the literatures on agency in sustainability transitions, on environmental policy under bounded rationality and social interactions, and on behavioral foundations of learning and innovation.”Keywords:Agency; behavioural economics; bounded rationality; innovation; learning; sustainability; transition

    There are fine materials manipulated into gorgeous accessories that
    can take on different forms as they are combined with different outfits and situations.
    But there would be some who would want to use these watches for an
    everyday basis. They are expensive and are sometimes are known to exceed
    the price of cars as well.

    I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing
    and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for novices.
    Could you please extend them a little from next time?

    Thanks for the post.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
