Abstract:      

As behavioural sciences are unearthing the complex cognitive framework in which people make decisions, policymakers seem increasingly ready to design behaviourally-informed regulations to induce behaviour change in the interests of the individual and society. After discussing what behavioural sciences have to offer to administrative law, this paper explores the extent to which administrative law may accommodate their findings into the regulatory process. After presenting the main regulatory tools capable of operationalizing behavioural insights, it builds a case for integrating them into public policymaking. In particular, this paper examines the challenges and frictions of behavioural regulation with regard both to established features of administrative law, such as the principle of legality, impartiality and judicial oversight and more innovative control mechanisms such as the use of randomized control trials to test new public policies. This analysis suggests the need to develop a legal framework capable of ensuring that behavioural considerations may inform the regulatory process while at the same time guaranteeing citizens’ constitutional rights and freedoms vis-à-vis the Regulatory State.

The Emergence of Law and Behavioural Science: A European Perspective by Anne-Lise Sibony, Alberto Alemanno :: SSRN

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Nudge and the Law explores the legal implications of the emergent phenomenon of behaviourally informed intervention. It focuses on the challenges and opportunit. Abstract: Nudge and the Law explores the legal implications of the emergent phenomenon of behaviourally informed intervention. It focuses on the challenges and opportunities it may offer to the policymaking of the European Union. This dual focus on law and on Europe characterises our endeavour. This volume has been structured by taking as a point of the departure the current nudging debate, which mainly comprises two strands of enquiry: when is it legitimate for States to use psychology to inform policy? (the legitimacy debate) and, to the extent that it is legitimate, how can behavioural insights in practice be incorporated into the decision making processes? (the practicability debate). Against this backdrop we brought together scholars who could analyse what behavioural insights might bring to EU law, both at a horizontal level and at a sectoral level. This volume endeavours to present the results of their research in a manner that is accessible both to EU law specialists who are not yet familiar with behavioural sciences and to behavioural lawyers who are not specialists in EU law.

Forecaster overconfidence and market survey performance

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond
Abstract: We document using the ZEW panel of German stock market forecasters that weak forecasters tend to be overconfident in the sense that they provide extreme forecasts and their confidence intervals are less likely to contain eventual realizations. Moderate filters based on forecast accuracy over short rolling windows are somewhat successful in improving predictability. While poor performance can be due to various factors, a filter based on a prior tendency to provide extreme forecasts also improves predictability.

Nudge theory and cashew nuts

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Richard Thaler talks about behavioural economics and his new book Misbehaving.

Economist Richard H. Thaler’s bestseller Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth and Happiness, co-authored with Cass R. Sunstein, shook up the world of economics in much the same way as great entrepreneurs take on incumbent businesses, and influenced world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron. To illustrate how humans require ‘nudges’ to improve their behaviour, Thaler famously cites how he once removed a bowl of cashew nuts from his dinner party guests to stop them filling up before dinner. “People were (a) happy, and (b) they realized their reaction conflicted with traditional economic theory,” he recently explained to Time magazine.

Accounting learning preferences: the role of visualisation

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond
Abstract: The accounting education environment is changing rapidly due to the increasing attention paid by public and private University and Institutions to the efficacy of course delivery and design. The learning preferences and attitudes of students represent an important starting point to develop an efficient and effective educational programme. Learning theories suggest that learning styles and preferences influence the effectiveness with which individuals learn. The success of educational programmes depends to some degree on students’ acceptance and ability to adapt their learning to the new technologies (Richardson et al , 2013). Learning preferences may include also the visualization as educational tools. In recent years the relevance of visualisation has increased, since it may support a clearer and more efficient representations of accounting information (Libby, 1981; Smith and Taffler. The visualization could stimulate and enhance the engagement of the student in the process of learning (Yalamova, 2010). But little is known about the pedagogical benefits of the use of visualization as defined by accounting literature. The paper tried to highly the gap between learning theory and the concept of visualization in accounting of both accounting students and academics. We present an Italian perspective on the role of visualisation, as learning preference, in accounting education, both in undergraduate and postgraduate courses. We used survey method, submitting Fleming’s questionnaire (Fleming & Baume, 2006) to determine the relevance of visualisation in learning accounting subject
