Bounded Rationality and Politics

Descriere: In Bounded Rationality and Politics, Jonathan Bendor considers two schools of behavioral economics--the first guided by Tversky and Kahneman's work on heuristics and biases, which focuses on the mistakes people make in judgment and choice; the second as described by Gerd Gigerenzer's program on fast and frugal heuristics, which emphasizes the effectiveness of simple rules of thumb. Finding each of these radically incomplete, Bendor's illuminating analysis proposes Herbert Simon's pathbreaking work on bounded rationality as a way to reconcile the inconsistencies between the two camps. Bendor shows that Simon's theory turns on the interplay between the cognitive constraints of decision makers and the complexity of their tasks.

Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern

Pret: 93,00 RON

Robert H. Bork

Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline

In this New York Times bestselling book, Robert H. Bork, our country's most distinguished conservative scholar, offers a prophetic and unprecedented view of a culture in decline, a nation in such serious moral trouble that its very foundation is crumbling: a nation that slouches not towards the Bethlehem envisioned by the poet Yeats in 1919, but towards Gomorrah.Slouching Towards Gomorrah is a penetrating, devastatingly insightful expose of a country in crisis at the end of the millennium, where the rise of modern liberalism, which stresses the dual forces of radical egalitarianism (the equality of outcomes rather than opportunities) and radical individualism (the drastic reduction of limits to personal gratification), has undermined our culture, our intellect, and our morality.In a new Afterword, the author highlights recent disturbing trends in our laws and society, with special attention to matters of sex and censorship, race relations, and the relentless erosion of American moral values. The alarm he sounds is more sobering than ever: we can accept our fate and try to insulate ourselves from the effects of a degenerating culture, or we can choose to halt the beast, to oppose ...

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista

Pret: 94,00 RON

Jorge del Rayo Ramos

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista Alrededor del Mundo

Este libro cuenta lo que el prestigioso periodista Jorge Ramos no ha podido decir por television. Como el mismo dice, muchas veces las cosas mas interesantes al cubrir una noticia ocurren detras de las camaras y estos relatos de viajes son el mejor ejemplo. Como reportero conductor titular del Noticiero Univision y escritor de varios libros, Ramos ha recorrido el mundo en busca de la noticia y ha entrevistado a algunos de los personajes mas poderosos del mundo. Todas esas vivencias estan aqui. Ademas, esta version actualizada del libro incluye sus experiencias, nunca antes contadas, en la guerra de Irak. Algunos relatos son solo ojeadas, hasta pestanazos, de sus viajes. En otros, se adentra a lo mas profundo y doloroso de un pais. Todos estan cargados de emocion y han marcado al periodista de una forma muy personal. Ver con los ojos bien abiertos y luego contar lo que viste, dice Ramos, es la funcion fundamental de un periodista. Solo ese ejercicio basico le permite despues decir: "Yo lo vi, nadie me lo conto."
