A Positive Typology of Irrational Decision Strategies

A Positive Typology of Irrational Decision Strategies

Fundamentally speaking, behavioral economics consists of an incoherent collection of heuristics and biases: There is no general theory that consistently connects and explains most of the effects under one conceptual umbrella. Indeed, many of these effects overlap, while some even contradict each other. None of this has been an issue so long as behavioral economics was primarily a ‘negative’ endeavor focused on proving what people are not, namely the rationaldecision-makers that are assumed by standard economic theory. Behavioral economics has been hugely successful in debunking the notion of a homo economicus, but as yet it has failed to deliver a ‘positive model’ of human choice as an alternative to rational choice theory. Based on thousands of experiments, we know how people don’t decide (i.e. rationally), but we don’t yet have a consistent model that shows how they do decide.
