What’s the emotional reaction to economic gains and losses?
Economics and psychology are two very different fields, yet they are inextricably linked. Hear from Nobel Laureates.
Economics and psychology are two very different fields. What makes up our culture, emotions, beliefs and political views surely has no effect on our economic outcomes. In fact, the two are not only inextricably linked, there is an entire field that studies the relationship between the two, behavioral economics.
While there has been more work and research done in more recent years Nobel Laureate Richard H. Thaler says that this is not at all a new phenomenon in economics. In fact, before the Second World War, economics was very much a behavioral field.
“After, when economics started to get very mathematical, economists forgot about their behavioral routes,” says Thaler. “The mathematization of economics was important and useful, but then I think economists got a little carried away. The more unrealistic the economic assumptions become, the more problematic.”
