Today's 2nd Buggy Topic
Daniel Kahneman, a social psychologist, won the Nobel Prize in economics in 2002. For decades, he and his colleagues ---- especially another Israeli-born social psychologist (Amos Tversky), and later several economists --- showed through a variety of experiments that humans don't behave in conformity with rational-choice theory, a finding that conflicts with much of micro- and macroeconomic theorizing. Click here for a lengthy buggy commentary on his achievements, including their utility in prof bug's own field --- international relations, and especially in military policies and arms control.
Not the testy tone used by most of the other posters in the thread.
