Alle Unternehmen wollen die Kaufentscheidungen von Kunden zu ihren Gunsten beeinflussen. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass dem konkreten Ablauf des Entscheidungsprozesses beim Kunden, dem Kaufakt selbst, kaum Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt wird – meist wird einfach ein rationaler Konsument unterstellt. Die Ergebnisse der Behavioural Economics zeigen jedoch völlig unzweifelhaft , dass Menschen nicht vernünftig entscheiden. Es wird Zeit, dass diese Erkenntnisse in den Unternehmen profitabel angewendet werden. Die Autoren verdeutlichen hier anschaulich, wie die Erkenntnisse der Behavioural Economics auf Unternehmen übertragen werden können. Sie entwickeln ein psychologisches Modell der Kaufentscheidung, das auch unvernünftiges menschliches Verhalten umfasst und damit vorhersagbar macht.

English summary: Behavioral economics, which aims at giving economics more realistic behavioral underpinnings, has its legal counterpart in what US lawyers have called Behavioral Law and Economics. The field investigates the limitations of economic analysis from both a theoretical and an empirical angle, and studies the significance of these insights for the law. The papers in this volume address the ensuing issues of legal theory, examine the relevance of behavioral research for individual fields of law, and explore the chances for a direct cooperation between the law and psychology. German description: Recht und Okonomie haben sich viel zu sagen. Doch auch wenn der homo oeconomicus ein uberaus fruchtbares intellektuelles Instrument ist, ist das okonomische Verhaltensmodell doch kein theoretischer Generalschlussel, mit dem sich alles menschliche Verhalten erklaren liesse. Vielmehr gibt es zahlreiche Situationen, in denen Menschen in einer Weise agieren, die aus einer streng okonomischen Perspektive nicht zu erklaren ist. Vor allem in Kooperation mit der Psychologie und durch das Aufkommen einer experimentellen Okonomik gilt das Interesse vieler Okonomen mittlerweile vermehrt solchen Konstellationen, in denen Modellprognosen und Realitat auseinander klaffen. Diese an realistischem Verhalten interessierte Verhaltensokonomik hat in den USA ihren rechtswissenschaftlichen Niederschlag in einer Forschungsrichtung gefunden, die sich 'Behavioral Law and Economics' nennt. Sie deckt die Grenzen okonomischer Analyse mit Hilfe verhaltenswissenschaftlicher Theorie und Empirie auf und fragt nach der Bedeutung dieser Einsichten fur das Recht. Die Autoren der Beitrage in diesem Band beleuchten rechtstheoretische Grundfragen der Theorierezeption und untersuchen die Relevanz verhaltenstheoretischer Forschung fur einzelne Rechtsgebiete und die Moglichkeiten einer direkten Kooperation von Rechtswissenschaft und Psychologie.

Beer has been consumed across the globe for centuries and was the drink of choice in many ancient societies. Today it is the most important alcoholic drink worldwide, in terms of volume and value. The largest brewing companies have developed into global multinationals, and the beer market has enjoyed strong growth in emerging economies, but there has been a substantial decline of beer consumption in traditional markets and a shift to new products. There is close interaction between governments and markets in the beer industry. For centuries, taxes on beer or its raw materials have been a major source of tax revenue and governments have regulated the beer industry for reasons related to quality, health, and competition. This book is the first economic analysis of the beer market and brewing industry. The introduction provides an economic history of beer, from monasteries in the early Middle Ages to the recent 'microbrewery movement', whilst other chapters consider whether people drink more beer during recessions, the effect of television on local breweries, and what makes a country a 'beer drinking' nation. It comprises a comprehensive and unique set of economic research and analysis on the economics of beer and brewing and covers economic history and development, supply and demand, trade and investment, geography and scale economies, technology and innovation, health and nutrition, quantity and quality, industrial organization and competition, taxation and regulation, and regional beer market developments.

This book uses economic theory to analyze the different aspects of organized crime. The theory of rent-seeking is adopted to help understand the origin of criminal organizations, while modern industrial organization theory is used to explain the design of internal rules. The market behavior of organized crime is analyzed, the "crime and economics" approach being applied to the analysis of corruption that occurs when the organized crime sector and the government collude to exploit their monopoly on rule-making. Each chapter outlines the normative results of the analysis in order to design more sophisticated deterrence policies.

"... competition, we see now, is destructive. It would be better if everyone would work together as a system, with the aim for everybody to win. What we need is cooperation and transformation to a new style of management." In this book W. Edwards Deming details the system of transformation that underlies the 14 Points for Management presented in Out of the Crisis. The system of profound knowledge, as it is called, consists of four parts: appreciation for a system, knowledge about variation, theory of knowledge, and psychology. Describing prevailing management style as a prison, Deming shows how a style based on cooperation rather than competition can help people develop joy in work and learning at the same time that it brings about long-term success in the market. Indicative of Deming's philosophy is his advice to abolish performance reviews on the job and grades in school. Previously published by MIT-CAES

A small but increasing number of economists have begun to use laboratory experiments to evaluate economic propositions under carefully controlled conditions. Experimental Economics is the first comprehensive treatment of this rapidly growing area of research. While the book acknowledges that laboratory experiments are no panacea, it argues cogently for their effectiveness in selected situations. Covering methodological and procedural issues as well as theory, Experimental Economics is not only a textbook but also a useful introduction to laboratory methods for professional economists. Although the authors present some new material, their emphasis is on organizing and evaluating existing results. The book can be used as an anchoring device for a course at either the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. Applications include financial market experiments, oligopoly price competition, auctions, bargaining, provision of public goods, experimental games, and decision making under uncertainty. The book also contains instructions for a variety of laboratory experiments.

The boundary between economics and sociology is presently being redefined--but how, why, and by whom? Richard Swedberg answers these questions in this thought-provoking book of conversations with well-known economists and sociologists. Among the economists interviewed are Gary Becker, Amartya Sen, Kenneth Arrow, and Albert O. Hirschman; the sociologists include Daniel Bell, Harrison White, James Coleman, and Mark Granovetter. The picture that emerges is that economists and sociologists have paid little attention to each other during most of the twentieth century: social problems have been analyzed as if they had no economic dimension and economic problems as if they had no social dimension. Today, however, there is a dialogue between the two fields, as economists take on social topics and as sociologists become interested in rational choice and "new economic sociology." The interviewees describe how they came to challenge the present separation between economics and sociology, what they think of the various proposals to integrate the fields, and how they envision the future. The author summarizes the results of the conversations in the final chapter. The individual interviews also serve as superb introductions to the work of these scholars.

This collection of writings provides the only comprehensive introduction to the input-output model for which Leontief was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1973. The structural approach to economics developed by Leontief, and known as input-output analysis, paved the way for the transformation of economics into a truly empirical discipline that could utilize modern data processing technology. This thoroughly revised second edition includes twenty essays--twelve of which are new to this edition--that reflect the past developments and the present state of the field. Beginning with an introductory chapter, the book leads the reader into an understanding of the input-output approach--not only as formal theory but also as a research strategy and powerful tool for dealing with a complex modern economy.
