Global Agenda Council on New Economic Thinking

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Economics is not a complete science, although it is described with elegant formulas and closed models. The reality of an economy is complex, with dynamic feedback loops. Yet policy-makers often make decisions and design interventions as though in a deterministic vacuum. Capital markets are far from stable and predictable. The recent financial crises have revealed how little is understood about how markets and economic systems work.

New schools of economic thinking, such as neuroeconomics, bounded rationality, behavioural finance and experimental economics, challenge the fundamental assumptions of neoclassical economic approaches. They go beyond the standard policy tools typically employed to analyse, discover, understand, describe and forecast economic issues and systems.

The Financial Judgment and Decision Making Process of Women: The Role of Negative Feelings by Victor Ricciardi :: SSRN

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Abstract:      
This is a PDF file of ‘The Financial Judgment and Decision Making Process of Women: The Role of Negative Feelings’ slides from a presentation at the Third Annual Meeting of the Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics, September 21-23, 2011, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA.

This conference presentation provided an extensive discussion about the literature on academic studies and non-academic research endeavors (e.g., national surveys and polls) in the realm of negative emotions, gender, and decision making. The financial psychology literature on gender and negative feelings documents the hypothesis that women reveal greater degrees of negative affect (emotion) than their male counterparts about money, financial planning, and investment decisions. 

Note: SSRN is experimenting with enabling the distribution of different types of files: slides, spreadsheets, video, etc. This is an upload of a PDF file of PowerPoint slides. We are interested in our users desires to distribute files that go beyond word processing text files. You can communicate with me on these issues via my email address below. We invite you to submit your own presentation slides.

Ecocultural basis of cognition: Farmers and fishermen are more holistic than herders

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

It has been proposed that social interdependence fosters holistic cognition, that is, a tendency to attend to the broad perceptual and cognitive field, rather than to a focal object and its properties, and a tendency to reason in terms of relationships and similarities, rather than rules and categories. This hypothesis has been supported mostly by demonstrations showing that East Asians, who are relatively interdependent, reason and perceive in a more holistic fashion than do Westerners. We examined holistic cognitive tendencies in attention, categorization, and reasoning in three types of communities that belong to the same national, geographic, ethnic, and linguistic regions and yet vary in their degree of social interdependence: farming, fishing, and herding communities in Turkey’s eastern Black Sea region. As predicted, members of farming and fishing communities, which emphasize harmonious social interdependence, exhibited greater holistic tendencies than members of herding communities, which emphasize individual decision making and foster social independence. Our findings have implications for how ecocultural factors may have lasting consequences on important aspects of cognition.
