Economics

 


 

The traditional model of "homo economicus" - that ever-rational individual, always maximizing his self-interest in competition with others is now acknowledged as unrealistic. It is a fear and scarcity model based on the early reptilian brain and the territoriality of our primitive past .This bleak model of human behavior at the heart of economics is not only dismal - but increasingly proven wrong by many other scientists and much recent research by neuroscientists, microbiologists, psychologists, anthropologists and yes, game theorists. This is why many recent Bank of Sweden Economics prizes have gone to scientists studying human behavior beyond the economics profession, from psychologists to game theorists John Harsonyi, John Nash and Reinhard Selten in 1994.

Charles Darwin's original notebooks, shows that Darwin was more interested in the human capacity to bond and trust as factors in Human Success. A chorus of scientists are now calling for the Nobel Prize in Economics to be abolished.
