Toward a Political Economy of the Commons

Simple Rules for Sustainability

Meina Cai, Ilia Murtazashvili, Jennifer Brick Murtazashvili and Raufhon Salahodjaev

Since Garrett Hardin published The Tragedy of the Commons in 1968, critics have argued that population growth and capitalism contribute to overuse of natural resources and degradation of the global environment. They propose coercive, state-centric solutions. This book offers an alternative view. Employing insights from new institutional economics, the authors argue that property rights, competitive markets, polycentric political institutions, and social institutions such as trust, patience and individualism enable society to conserve natural resources and mitigate harms to the global environment.

Written by well-established researchers in behavioural economics, this Research Agenda illustrates the application of incentivised decision-making experiments, highlighting how this can add a new and novel dimension to social science research. Informative and timely, it explores how experiments are being used by pioneers in a diverse range of fields when research questions may not be amenable to field studies, vignettes or surveys.

Recent data indicates that roughly 1/3 of adults suffer from insufficient sleep. Poor sleep, in general, impacts not only physical but also behavioral health via the type of thought process used during decision making. This chapter surveys the research on sleep and decision making with a focus on decision paradigms that use rigorous and incentivized methods common to the field of experimental economics. After conceptualizing the brain’s decision problem using production theory, the variety of different methodologies used to study sleepiness are discussed (e.g., sleep deprivation/restriction, circadian timing, observational studies). I then review the research on adverse sleep states and high-level decision making, which covers both individual and social/interactive decisions. The surveyed research highlights how the relative use of deliberative versus automatic thought processes is affected by sleep and how this translates to important decision outcomes. Poor sleep is commonplace, and so continued research in this area seems worthwhile.
