  2. Trust

    Trust

    Edited by Elias L. Khalil
    Trust is an authoritative collection of previously published articles and is unique in the growing literature on trustworthiness. The broad ranging articles are organized into three parts, expressing three definite answers to the question posed in the introduction: Why does trustworthiness pay? Part I, ‘Trust as Strategy’, stipulates that trust is an investment in reputation. Part II, ‘Trust as Taste’, argues that agents have a preference for trustworthiness, which may explain the anomaly of trustworthiness in single-shot games. Part III, ‘Trust as Trait’, maintains that trust is a trait that evolutionary selection may favor. In his extensive introductory essay, Elias Khalil elaborates and contrasts the strengths and weaknesses of each answer. Learn More

  4. The Legacy of Herbert Simon in Economic Analysis

    The Legacy of Herbert Simon in Economic Analysis

    Edited by Peter E. Earl
    Herbert A. Simon has been a leading contributor to cognitive psychology, computer science, public administration, philosophy and statistics, and is the winner of the 1978 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics. As this authoritative collection demonstrates, his impact on economics has been felt in areas as diverse as the theory of the firm and economic organization, consumer behaviour, law and economics, and environmental economics. Central to his work is the notion of bounded rationality – the mismatch between human decision-making capacities and the scale of the decision problems that people face, which results in satisficing rather than optimising behaviour – and his belief that economic research should start from the study of actual behaviour rather than being based on convenient but unrealistic assumptions. Peter Earl’s choice of articles shows both the kind of economics that emerges when Simon’s philosophy is followed comprehensively, and what happens when neo-classical economists partially adopt his ideas.

  19. GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM THEORY

    GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM THEORY

    Edited by Gérard Debreu
    General Equilibrium Theory has been one of the major intellectual developments in economics during the past half-century. The theory of general equilibrium is centred on an inquiry about human societies which has several of the characteristics of a fundamental scientific question. In an economy, a multitude of agents produce, exchange, and consume a large number of commodities. Their decisions are independent of each other and dictated by self-interest. Attempting to answer the question ‘Why is social chaos not the result?’ has required an intensive research effort by several generations of leading economists. This important three volume set gathers together many of the articles that have played an influential role in the history of ideas in the general equilibrium area in the contemporary period.
