    Fish & Chips Economics
    A colleague, after hearing my take on economics, suggested I should tell this story. And that’s an important “doesn’t make sense” Because, economics tells us that competition will drive a continuing increase in the quality of products and services. The underlying point, besides making and affectionate dig at our economic model, is that the details matter. The post Fish & Chips Economics appeared first on Learnlets.

    Traditional economics is based on the assumption that humans are rational beings, that we evaluate our situation in a logical way, making decisions based on cost- benefit analyses. Behavioural economics turns this on its head and suggests that, actually, we are myopic creatures whose choices are loaded with emotions and cognitive bias. Behavioural economics brings in ideas from psychology, neuroscience, sociology and microeconomics to explain the way that decisions are made.
