There is no doubt that behavioral economics is becoming a dominant lens through which we think about economics. Behavioral economics is not a single school of thought but representative of a range of approaches, and uniquely, this volume presents an overview of them. The wide spectrum of international contributors each provides an exploration of a central approach, aspect or topic in behavorial economics. Taken together, the whole volume provides a comprehensive overview of the subject which considers both key developments and future possibilities. Part One presents several different approaches to behavioural economics, including George Katona, Ken Boulding, Harvey Leibenstein, Vernon Smith, Herbert Simon, Gerd Gigerenzer, Daniel Kahneman, and Richard Thaler. This section looks at the origins and development of behavioral economics and compares and contrasts the work of these scholars who have been so influential in making this area so prominent. Part Two presents applications of behavioural economics including nudging; heuristics; emotions and morality; behavioural political economy, education, and economic innovation. The Routledge Handbook of Behavioral Economics is ideal for advanced economics students and faculty who are looking for a complete state-of-the-art overview of this dynamic more

Review quote

'This Handbook provides a good coverage of contemporary behavioral economic topics and is written by an excellent group of authors' - Gerrit Antonides, Wageningen University, The Netherlands 'This book contains a great collection of chapters on behavioral economics. It is distinguished by the diversity of its subject matter and the distinctiveness of its authors. If you want genuine insights and viewpoints as well as analyses not found elsewhere, please read the Handbook of Behavioral Economics. It is loaded with gems that contrast the unrealism of neoclassical economics with the realism of excellent behavioral economics.' - John Tomer, Manhattan College, more
