Summary "Applies the psychological insights of behavioral economics to economic concepts such as moral hazard, deadweight loss, and incidence. Explores how deviations from the standard economic model of decisionmaking--imperfect optimization, bounded self-control, and nonstandard preferences--might affect public finance policy regarding externalities, information asymmetries, poverty, and taxes"--Provided by publisher.
