Why Ethical Behaviour is Good for the Economy

Towards Growth, Wellbeing and Freedom

Morris Altman

This timely book offers a nuanced critique of the nudge narrative, and demonstrates why and how ethical behaviour can have significant positive economic and wellbeing outcomes. Morris Altman models a complex alternative to the expectations of ethical behaviour and shows how this behaviour can be consistent with competitive market economies, contrary to what conventional economic theory suggests.

The financial crisis and its economic and political aftermath have changed the ways that many anthropologists approach economic activities, institutions and systems. This insightful volume presents important elements of this change. With topics ranging from the relationship of states and markets to the ways that anthropologists’ political preferences and assumptions harm their work, the book presents cogent statements by younger and established scholars of how existing research areas can be extended and the new avenues that ought to be pursued.

Giving Behaviours and Social Cohesion

How People Who ‘Give’ Make Better Communities

Lorna Zischka

‘Giving’ time and money to the community indicates the existence of relationships that draw people together, and ‘who people give to’ indicates how inclusive these relational networks are. Using UK data for the analysis, Zischka argues that a person’s willingness to ‘give' is not only influenced by social cohesion; it also helps to generate social cohesion. For thriving communities, we therefore need to consider our ‘giving’ as well as our ‘getting’.

This chapter discusses the existing public policies for start-ups and Venture Capital and the empirical evidence of their effects on the opportunistic behavior of the actors of the technological and financial ecosystem, with a focus on the Italian environment. Problems of governance of academic organizations are analyzed first, in order to understand the factors that affect entrepreneurial behaviors of researchers and the motivational systems that spur individuals and departments to act in an entrepreneurial way. The effects of fiscal incentives on the performance of the start-up ecosystem are finally examined.

The Behavioural Finance Revolution

A New Approach to Financial Policies and Regulations

Edited by Riccardo Viale, Shabnam Mousavi, Barbara Alemanni and Umberto Filotto

Financial markets are complex. Regulators strive to predict ways in which they can malfunction and create rules to prevent this from happening, yet behavioural impacts are often overlooked. This book explores how behavioural finance can go hand-in-hand with traditional methods to help banks and regulators create better policies. It also demonstrates how the behavioural finance revolution has opened the way to a more integrated approach to the analysis of economic phenomena.

Umberto Filotto

Behavioral regulation is on the agenda of politicians and authorities of most countries as coercive legislation has financial and political costs that are becoming difficult to afford. However, not all measures are equivalent, and not all of them are effective and appropriate in any situation: some issues have thus to be discussed to develop an effective and balanced approach. The preliminary step is the development of a shared vision of objectives of the regulation; once this is reached there are some issues specific to the behavioral approach. The first one is answering the question of the preferability of the gentle push over mandatory rules; then, if we accept the fact that regulators have the right and the duty to regulate, we should be confident that they are competent enough; finally there is the issue of responsibility: what happens, who is responsible and what are the consequences if things go wrong?
