Shared Mental Models: Ideologies and Institutions
AbstractFor most of the interesting issues in political and economic markets, uncertainty rather than risk characterizes choice-making. In order to understand decision-making under conditions of strong uncertainty, we must understand the relationship between the mental models that individuals construct to make sense of the world around them, the ideologies that evolve from such constructions, and the institutions that develop in a society to order interpersonal relationships. This paper develops a framework with which to understand and model the shared mental models that guide choices and shape the evolution of political-economic systems and societies.
