    Policy Diffusion Dynamics in America integrates research from agenda setting and epidemiology to model factors that shape the speed and scope of public policy diffusion. Drawing on a data set of more than policy innovations, the research demonstrates that the 'laboratories of democracy' metaphor for incremental policy evaluation and Cited by: This book promotes bounded rationality as the key to understanding how real people make decisions.

      Rather than concluding investment treaties based on informed rational choices, in this bounded rationality model low- and middle-income countries in effect walked into the investment treaty regime without fully realizing it. The subsequent chapters of the book review the evidence base to assess the predictive power of the bounded rationality : Lorenzo Cotula. Bounded rationality is the idea that we make decisions that are rational, but within the limits of the information available to us and our mental ists who think of us as ‘boundedly rational’ don’t see us as an ‘economic superman’, or homo economicus that spends his life optimizing the happiness created by every decision.. Instead, they see us as satisficers — as.

Experts and decision-makers did not proactively scan the international environment and evaluate foreign innovations in a thorough, systematic way, as comprehensive rationality would require.

Instead, bounded rationality prevailed, as in the diffusion of pension privatization. Bounded rationality is the idea that rationality is limited, when individuals make decisions, by the tractability of the decision problem, the cognitive limitations of the mind, and the time available to make the decision.

Decision-makers, in this view, act as satisficers, seeking a satisfactory solution rather than an optimal one.

Herbert A. Simon proposed bounded rationality as an. Using evidence from pension and health care policy diffusion in Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Peru, Weyland () demonstrates that cognitive limitations, especially bounded.

This definition is, of course, not entirely satisfactory, in that it specifies neither the precept being violated nor conditions under which a set of goals may be. The operationalisation of bounded rationality perspectives in a cross-national policy reform context will make an important addition to the toolbox available to researchers."--Latin American Studies Bloggat om Bounded Rationality and Policy Diffusion.
