Practice Improvisation to Become a Faster and More Creative Thinker

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

We can’t completely plan out everything that happens in our lives. Instead a lot of the situations we find ourselves in we have to respond to spontaneously – which requires a certain amount of fast and creative thinking on the spot.

When we try to plan too much, we often over-think and over-analyze, which leads us to hesitate and not take action. For example, if you’re having a conversation with a new girl or boy you like, you may often find yourself thinking in your head, “What should I say?” which takes you out of the moment and usually ends with you not saying much of anything at all.

For some people, it’s really difficult to get “outside of their heads” and into the moment. However, one way we can practice being more spontaneous is by practicing improvisation exercises to make our minds think faster and more freely.

Are Consumer Decision-Making Phenomena a Fourth Market Failure Pete Lunn

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Abstract: This paper challenges the increasingly common view that the findings of behavioural economics constitute a fourth type of market failure. The market failure framework elevates the standard competitive market model to the status of an ideal. It provides us with tools to identify departures from the ideal model and to deduce a direction policy might take to restore it. Many behavioural phenomena also imply departures from the ideal model. Yet rather than allowing us to deduce a good direction for policy, the findings question the legitimacy and usefulness of this deductive theoretical framework for policy analysis. Two policy problems are highlighted here: the validity of inferring that consumers’ choices after an intervention improve outcomes relative to their previous choices, and the potential for distributional consequences when policy alters consumers’ choices. The paper concludes that, given these problems, conceiving of the relevant behavioural phenomena as an additional form of market failure is potentially to misunderstand their implications for consumer and competition policy.

The emergence of democracy: a behavioural perspective – Munich Personal RePEc Archive

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Abstract

 

In the present essay we introduce in a model the concept of macroculture and the formation of new values within the particular macroculture that arose during the 8th to 4th century BC in Ancient Greece. We analyse the conditions and the context for the emergence of the heavy infantryman, the hoplite, and the new tactical formation, the phalanx, and the trireme warship. We apply the coordination and cooperation as behavioural mechanisms to the phalanx and the triremes to show how a specific set of new values emerged. Then, taking into account bounded rationality, as a second behavioural mechanism we analyse how these values were taken over from the military into the political field and thus were crucial for the emergence and development of democracy.

2013 guide to the American Marketing Association job market interviews for aspiring professors – Decision Science News

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

HOW TO GET INTO THE AMA JOB MARKET
First, at least a couple months before the conference, find where it will be. It’s called the American Marketing Association Summer Educator’s Conference. Strange name, we know. Insiders just call it “The AMA”. Get yourself a room in the conference hotel, preferably on the floor where the express elevator meets the local elevator for the upper floors. You’ll be hanging out on this floor waiting to change elevators anyway, so you might as well start there. Next, create a list of schools at which you would like a job. You can find the top 100 schools ranked by journal publications at: http://jindal.utdallas.edu/the-utd-top-100-business-school-research-rankings . Next, apply to each one you’d go to. In the past, this involved physically mailing application packets, but these days nearly everything is electronic. Some schools have online application portals, and others will take applications by email. How do you find out which one? Hopefully, the school you are applying to will have posted a job at ELMAR (see http://ama-academics.communityzero.com/elmar; and subscribe to their mailing list) or elsewhere, which will specify how to submit your application. Other times, you’ll need to get in touch with a department administrator to find out how to apply. It’s a good idea to apply to schools you like even if they say they aren’t hiring. Sometimes things change suddenly (a tenured faculty member unexpectedly moves to another school), and the only thing you risk is your time.
