क्या आप तर्कहीन है? Should policymakers assume humans are irrational?

नीतियां बनाते वक़्त, ये समझना ज़रूरी होता है कि लोग कैसे सोचते हैं और कैसे अपना व्यवहार तय करते हैं, तभी कामयाब और फायदेमंद नीतियां बन पाएंगी। लेकिन, क्या नीति बनाने वाले ये मान लें कि लोग अक्सर अतार्किक फैसले लेते हैं या ये कि लोग ज़्यादातर विवेकशील होते हैं? आखिर, ऐसी मान्यताओं के आधार पर कैसी नीतियां बनेंगी? आइये, करते हैं आज इसी पर चर्चा। 

In the realm of policymaking, understanding human behavior is crucial for crafting effective and impactful solutions. However, a central debate revolves around whether policymakers should assume humans are inherently rational or irrational beings. What kind of policies will such assumptions lead to? We argue against the assumption of human irrationality and examine its implications for policy formulation. 

We discuss:

  • Making decisions for others

  • Assuming irrationality

  • Humans are reasonable

  • Is buying lottery irrational

  • A lottery to increase voting percentage

  • Empathy vs Compassion
