Comparative Decision Making

Decision making—in practice and in concept—pervades essentially all intellectual activities, nucleating many analyses and applications within a broad array of disciplines. It is time to take full advantage of this diverse trove of methods and insights by borrowing, trading, and collaborating across this long reach, the raison d’être of comparative decision making. The deep similarities, deep differences, and partial overlaps of approach and interpretation will certainly spark new initiatives within and between disciplines. Building linkages among researchers across traditional lines of enquiry can help educate the next generation of thinkers and practioners, who will need to think broadly and adjust to a rapidly changing intellectual and physical environment.
