A Progressive Response
Chapter 4: Who are we? Why the Enlightenment model of who we are won’t do
This chapter explores human behaviour, taking into account what we have learned from behavioural research of the last 30 years, and so presents a framework for considering our behaviour in relation to economic and social policy that is rather different from the Enlightenment model upon which much economic and social policymaking is based. It presents us as being flawed individuals across a range of dimensions, and argues that these flaws much be taken into account in policymaking.
