Edge looks at how we decide. Thoughts I liked:
- We see priming in experiments (you can affect outcomes by subtle clues in the environment) – how much does this affect the way we work in practice?
- Most standards are de facto and not usually driven by government
- We set our discount rates too high (see the Indian fruit vendor discussion)
- How should government design an “idiot mode” for its services
- Anchoring and its effect on neogtiations (get your number in first!)
