Special Issue "Economics of Motivated Beliefs"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2023) | Viewed by 7235
People tend to hold a positive self-view or a rosy world-view, by processing information in a biased way. The economics of motivated beliefs has been growing very fast in the past decades, producing new insights in psychology and economics. In this area, researchers aim to answer the question of why and how individuals are cognitively “irrational” in the literature of behavioral economics. This Special Issue of Games is devoted to the economic analysis of motivated beliefs by applying - but not limited to - game theory, or experimental/empirical approaches. We welcome authors with research of this topic to submit their manuscripts to this Special Issue of Games.
