Obiettivi formativi

L'obiettivo del corso di Economia del Comportamento è quello di riesaminare alcune delle tematiche e dei modelli utilizzati nell’economia neoclassica. Molta parte della teoria economia è di tipo normativo. I modelli economici ci spiegano che cosa il consumatore dovrebbe fare, come cioè si dovrebbe comportare e non come si comporta nella realtà.
Presupposti dell’Economia neoclassica sono la “razionalità “ del consumatore ed il comportamento massimizzante di consumatori ed imprese.

The aim of the couse is introducing students to Priciples of Behavioral Economics. We will analize models about how people behave in reality, when the rationality assumptions on which neoclassical economics is based are relaxed. Behavioral Economics uses elements of Neuroscience as well as Psychology in order to better explain Individual Economic Behaviour
