Multidisciplinary Economics, A Methodological Account
Piet Keizer, Utrecht University School of Economics
• Offers a micro-foundation for multidisciplinary economic research
• Presents the role of psychological and sociological factors in explaining important real-life economic phenomena, such as the global economic crisis 2008
• An introduction into the basics of philosophy of science, including many examples of analyses relevant for an understanding of economic phenomena
• Shows how psychology and sociology, can be used to improve the student’s understanding of the functioning of persons, organisations, markets, and market economies
The book argues that mainstream economists, who base their analyses only on the economic motivation of people, fail to explain and understand real-life economic phenomena. The economic crisis, which began in 2008, illustrates the relevance of psychic and social motivations, especially when combined with each other.
