The list author says: "I have created this list to make it easier for students in my psychological economics and policy class to find the books. The list includes both (1) the books required of everybody and (2) recommended additional readings. (Note: another great, readable book on behavioral economics is Thaler and Sunstein's Nudge. I'm not assigning that in this class because I assign it in my sections of RPAD 503.)"
"This book examines perspectives of risk, especially in terms of how entire societies become too afraid of some risks and insufficiently afraid of others. I assign this one in my health policy class. Its main examples deal with security issues."
