Il processo della scelta economica. Variazioni su un tema di Albert Hirschman
AbstractThe fundamental theme underlying Hirschman’s thought regards the nature of the process of the economic choice. He argues that the search of an "appropriatness" between too much and too little, expresses our aspiration to well-being, better than the idea of an objective concerning pleasure maximization. Once the choice has been carried out, we usually aim, trough a mechanism of reduction of the cognitive dissonance, to weaken disappointment and regret for the criteria we have discarted. It is on the very base of these theses that Hirschman discusses which "strategies" could better enhance our economic choices.
