Beschreibung:
The model of homo oeconomicus, a rational self-interested individual who maximizes her utility and is not interested in the well-being of her fellow human beings, often fails to provide an adequate picture of individual decision-making processes. In some circumstances, individuals make systematically wrong decisions; moreover, social preferences like altruism, fairness or reciprocity play an important role in individual decisions. This lecture demonstrates which implications can be drawn from behavioral economic insights for economic policy. The fundamental question of how much governmental intervention can be justified to correct the errors of individual decision making is one topic. Moreover, specific policies are considered with respect to insights from behavioral economics. Amongst the topics covered in the lecture are optimal taxation of sin goods such as alcohol and tobacco, effects of social pressure for energy consumption, the role of default options in retirement savings, altruism and social pressure in charitable giving, complexity and salience of taxes, moral aspects and the effects of social pressure for tax fraud, behavioral aspects of minimum wages or the role of labeling of transfer payments.
