What Can be Learned from Behavioural Economics for Environmental Policy?
Markus Pasche ()
No 2013-020, Jena Economic Research Papers from Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena
Behavioural economics attracted attention from environmental economists: it should help to understand why people do not respond to environmental policy measures, based on neoclassical assumptions, as predicted by theory. Moreover, understanding motives and driving forces behind pro-social, pro-environmental and cooperative behaviour should help to improve environmental policy design. The aim of this paper is a critical discussion of the way how this branch of research is interpreting the explanatory power and the normative (policy) implications of behavioural economics.
