About the Authors
  • Psychologists have been observing and interpreting economic behaviour for at least fifty years, and the last decade, in particular, has seen an escalated interest in the interface between psychology and economics. The Cambridge Handbook of Psychology and Economic Behaviour is a valuable reference resource dedicated to improving our understanding of the economic mind and economic behaviour. Employing empirical methods – including laboratory experiments, field experiments, observations, questionnaires and interviews – the Handbook covers aspects of theory and method, financial and consumer behaviour, the environment and biological perspectives. With contributions from distinguished scholars from a variety of countries and backgrounds, the Handbook is an important step forward in the improvement of communications between the disciplines of psychology and economics. It will appeal to academic researchers and graduates in economic psychology and behavioural economics.

    • A valuable reference resource linking the disciplines of psychology and economics
    • Features contributions from distinguished scholars from twelve countries, providing a truly international perspective
    • Covers aspects of theory and method, financial and consumer behaviour, the environment and biological perspectives

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...The section on finance provides a comprehensive, valuable overview of how psychology has influence economic understanding of investment and saving; the volume is worthwhile just for this longest and strongest part...Recommended..."
    --S. Solnick, University of Vermont, CHOICE

    "Twenty papers present a psychological perspective on the economic mind and economic behavior..."
    --Journal of Economic Literature

    "It is hard to imagine a more timely appearance for a book on psychology and economic behavior than now...a worthwhile read, not just for academic psychologists and economists, but for anyone interested in understanding more about the recent crisis and for policy makers looking to mitigate future economic disasters...The goal of the Handbook is to put psychology on more of an equal footing with economics by showing how important psychological mechanisms are to decision making...[Overall]...the Handbook is successful...The Handbook would be a good resource for graduate students and advanced undergraduates studying decision making, behavioral economics, or the psychology of economic behavior...The chapters are, for the most part, accessible even to new entrants to the field...Lewis should be commended for compiling such a comprehensive and engrossing set of contributions to the study of economic behavior."
    --PsycCRITIQUES, Margery Lucas
