Pointing Toward a Unifying Framework for Decision Making

(p.135) 10 Neuroeconomics
Food and Nutrition Economics

George C. Davis

Elena L. Serrano

Oxford University Press

Chapter 10 places both the neoclassical and behavioral economic approaches under the broader unifying framework of neuroeconomics. The chapter uses insights from the neuroscience and neuroeconomics literature to consider food and nutrition choices within a dual systems dual objectives framework with limited cognitive resources. This framework allows us to reinterpret and re-evaluate various factors already discussed in the book, ranging from income, to prices, to information campaigns, to behavioral effects. This broader framework sheds new light on why some factors may seem more important than others. This leads naturally to a discussion of the types of nutrition interventions that are most likely to be most effective as well.
