Book description

There has recently been an escalated interest in the interface between psychology and economics. The Cambridge Handbook of Psychology and Economic Behaviour is a valuable reference dedicated to improving our understanding of the economic mind and economic behaviour. Employing empirical methods - including laboratory and field experiments, observations, questionnaires and interviews - the Handbook provides comprehensive coverage of theory and method, financial and consumer behaviour, the environment and biological perspectives. This second edition also includes new chapters on topics such as neuroeconomics, unemployment, debt, behavioural public finance, and cutting-edge work on fuzzy trace theory and robots, cyborgs and consumption. With distinguished contributors from a variety of countries and theoretical backgrounds, the Handbook is an important step forward in the improvement of communications between the disciplines of psychology and economics that will appeal to academic researchers and graduates in economic psychology and behavioral economics.

Reviews

‘Over recent decades, behavioural economists have provided significant insight into economic decision-making through empirical observation. The literature is vast and growing, which is why I highly recommendation this collection. The contributors are prominent scholars, including psychologists and economists. This Handbook has a central spot on my reference shelf.'

Lucy F. Ackert - Kennesaw State University, Georgia

‘An excellent collection of work that reviews important recent interdisciplinary developments in psychology and economics. It not only serves as an able handbook for scholars, but also contributes valuable insights useful for policy-makers and practitioners alike.'

Erte Xiao - Monash Business School, Melbourne

'Methods used vary and include experimental, social surveys and questionnaires, interviews, neurological investigations, and qualitative and cultural analysis. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty.'
