Hat tip to Gareth for this neat op-ed piece by David Brooks calling for us to rethink our assumptions around decision making.

Not sure I'd agree with all of the steps or anything like that order, but the point is well made nonetheless that our shared ideas about how people decide, either as individual agents or as part of a larger group are largely b******* and need a proper rethink

Was writing a paper on the subject this morning and, on reflection, it feels like a number of us have been saying this for years. A number of years. Voices in the wilderness?

Guess it proves the point really – evidence and rationality have b***** all to do with what we humans do/believe
