Knowing and Making: On the identity and methods of behavioural economics

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

The past decade has been a triumph for behavioural economics…[which] is one of the hottest ideas in public policy….Yet, as with any success story, the backlash has begun. Critics argue that the field is overhyped, trivial, unreliable, a smokescreen for bad policy, an intellectual dead-end – or possibly all of the above. Is behavioural economics doomed to reflect the limitations of its intellectual parents, psychology and economics? Or can it build on their strengths and offer a powerful set of tools for policy makers and academics alike?

An astonishing record – of complete failure – FT.com

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

In the 2001 issue of the International Journal of Forecasting, an economist from the International Monetary Fund, Prakash Loungani, published a survey of the accuracy of economic forecasts throughout the 1990s. He reached two conclusions. The first was that forecasts are all much the same. There was little to choose between those produced by the IMF and the World Bank, and those from private sector forecasters. The second conclusion was that the predictive record of economists was terrible. Loungani wrote: “The record of failure to predict recessions is virtually unblemished.”

A Behavioral Economics Approach to Development | Jeff Bloem

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

This is an exciting time to be applying behavioral economics to development practice and policy. In fact, much of what is discussed in this video is what I am applying to my work in Kenya with churches. This video explains why designing programs and policies is just as important, if not more important, than what the program or policy ultimately targets. Of course you could just read Thinking Fast and Slow, Poor Economics, Scarcity, Nudge, and a forthcoming essay written by yours truly, but this video will take much less time.
