Behavioral Economics books for RPAD 645

Stephen Weinberg
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.)"
