El comportamiento económico desde la perspectiva biológica y sicológica

Economic Behaviour from a Biological and Psychological Approach

Contenido principal del artículo

Siervo Tulio Delgado Ruiz
Jorge Iván González

Resumen

El artículo explora algunos principios del comportamiento económico desde una aproximación biológica y sicológica, mediante un análisis reflexivo sobre la posibilidad de explicar las actuaciones económicas de los individuos a partir de la revisión de aspectos propios de disciplinas que están más allá de las fronteras de las ciencias económicas. Se destaca la importancia que tienen las emociones en la toma de decisiones. La comprensión de estas motivaciones ayuda a mejorar el diseño y la evaluación de las políticas públicas y las decisiones de inversión; además, se muestra que el contexto de desigualdad y felicidad incide en la formación del juicio heurístico.
