Summary note
"In this volume, some of the world's leading thinkers in behavioral economics and general economic theory make the case for a much greater use of behavioral ideas in six fields where these ideas have already proved useful but have not yet been fully incorporated - public economics, development, law and economics, health, wage determination, and organizational economics. The result is an attempt to set the agenda of an important development in economics - an agenda that will interest policymakers, sociologists, and psychologists as well as economists."--BOOK JACKET.
Notes
Based on an international conference held in Helsinki, Finland, June 22-23, 2004 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Yrjö Jahnsson Foundation.
