RATIONALITY MODELS AND THE ECONOMIC CRISIS
Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde at the Jean Nicod Institute and the University Paris 2 (Lemma) and Jean Baratgin at CHArt (PARIS), University Paris 8 & EPHE organize this event as the first of a series that aims to reflect on the psychological grounds for the economic crisis. The focus is particularly made in this first case, on the contrast between explanations based on an accumulation of individual biases, supported in terms of an irrationality inherited as a sum of individual irrationalities systems, and explanations underlining the independence between emerging and complex phenomena of crisis and individual behaviours. The epistemological question is that of the right level of explanation of crises.
