Behavioural Economics

Behavioural Economics examines why people’s actions deviate from the predictions of standard economic theory. More broadly, Behavioural Economics examines how context impacts on people’s decision making. Through a better understanding of people’s decision making, Behavioural Economics provides for the better design, implementation, and targeting of public policy.
