Frey, Bruno S; Benz, Matthias (2002). From Imperialism to Inspiration: A Survey of Economics and Psychology. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 118, University of Zurich.
Economics and psychology are both sciences of human behaviour. This paper gives a survey of their interaction. First, the changing relationship between the two sciences isndiscussed: while economics was once imperialistic, it has become a science inspired by psychological insights. In order to illustrate this, recent developments and evidence for three major areas are presented: bounded rationality, non-selfish behaviour, and the economics of happiness.
