Psychology and Economics


  • Viktor Kotlán


his article summarizes a recent seminar of the Czech Economic Association devoted to the relationship between psychology and economics. While economic methodology strives for scientific reasoning, the course of this pursuit often results in the neglect of the behavioral aspects of economic agents. A paper, presented at the seminar, and the discussion afterward showed that psychology may enrich economic thinking about reality.
