    This book constitutes an empirical behavioral challenge to traditional economic and game theory. Using constructivist and ecological approaches, Vernon L. Smith, a Nobel Laureate in Economic Science, provides a new perspective based on experimental science that considers the work of F. A. Hayek and the classical liberal tradition. Economists may use the rationality assumption as part of broader studies seeking to understand certain behaviors of society as a whole.

Likewise, in economics, rationality gives us the flexibility to consider many explanations that are consistent with what we see. Our job is to evaluate these explanations for their plausibility and predictive generalizability. Its flexibility makes rationality a surprisingly optimistic and empathetic concept.

The principal findings of experimental economics are that impersonal exchange in markets converges in repeated interaction to the equilibrium states implied by economic theory, under information conditions far weaker than specified in the theory/5. Rationality and freedom are among the most profound and contentious concepts in philosophy and the social sciences.

In two volumes on rationality, freedom, and justice, the distinguished economist and philosopher Amartya Sen brings clarity and insight to these difficult by: This article examines three competing views entertained by economic theory about the instrumental rationality of decisions.

The first says to maximize self-interest, the second to maximize utility, and the third to “satisfice,” that is, to adopt a satisfactory option. Critics argue that the first view is too narrow, that the second overlooks the benefits of teamwork and planning.

The dominant hypothesis in mainstream economics is the assumption of prefect rationality. However, there are two dilemmas: Whenever this assumption was used empirical evidence turned out to be against it.

Secondly, this assumption is far from reality, for example, because individuals usually do not possess all relevant information. To best understand the notion of rationality in economics, it is best to compare it to rationality in a more psychological sense: the quality of being able to think sensibly or logically.

This comparison highlights that rationality in economics is more concerned with the outcome of the decision whilst, in psychological terms, rationality is greater associated to the process at. This book is the result of a research project begun by the author in with the aim of answering two questions: First, what is the rationality of the economic systems that appear and disappear throughout history—in other words, what is their hidden logic and the underlying necessity for them to exist, or to have existed.
