Read and File on Homo economicus

A sharp debate is engages on the efficacy of theories using Homo economicus which is worth reading (and filing)

The case against is put forward here ‘Myth’ versus ‘Fact’: a ‘fiction useful to rightwing economists’ and the case for Homo economicus: ‘he-ain’t-dead-yet!’ here

Read them both and make up your own mind. Useful side-bar reading to Tim Harford’s Logic of Life.
