本提案概述了跨越行为经济学理论基础部分和更多应用部分的一系列具体主题的项目.

在基础项目中, 我将开发广泛适用的个人决策模型,其中包含对个人的心理现实假设, 这可以被我和其他人用来研究心理现象对经济结果的影响. I will (i) provide an attention-based theory of several central and hitherto unmodeled aspects of mental accounting; (ii) analyze the implications of overconfidence about one's ability or prospects for learning about other economically important variables; and (iii) incorporate into economic settings, 并探索一些后果, 自尊——黄金城网站登录首页对自己的感觉——可能是极其脆弱的.

在更实用的项目中, 我将使用心理现实模型来阐明有关市场和组织的重要经济问题. I will (i) identify market outcomes and especially welfareincreasing regulations when consumers with limited attention make tradeoffs between "browsing" more products superficially and "studying" fewer products in detail; (ii) use a contract-theoretic approach to help understand and possibly undermine organizations that pursue goals its members oppose; (iii) analyze the nature and consequences of procrastination when a person's alternative choices are supplied by the market; (iv) explore the potential for a policy framework centered around informed consent to address privacy concerns in a market where some consumers are naive about product offers; and (v) investigate the implications of financial choice and financial information in a market for retail securities when investors do not understand that issuers are utilizing superior information in designing offers.
