Neuroeconomics: Hype or Hope (Journal of Economic Methodology)

Mark D. White

Today I received the latest issue of the Journal of Economic Methodology (17/2, June 2010), a special issue by guest editors Caterina Marchionni and Jack Vromen entitled "Neuroeconomics: Hype or Hope?" It features articles by Uskali Maki, Paul J. Zak, Jack Vromen, Don Ross, and more, and looks to be a fantastic and balanced look at this relatively new field that promises such new insights into human behavior. Being a skeptic of this approach to economics (largely stemming from my distaste for the reductionism of neuroscience), I'm very eager to delve into the essays in this issue.
