Behavioral economics introduces ideas from the field of psychology into conventional economic analysis.

The field's origins lie in explaining "anomalies" in individual decision making, but its insights and tools are increasingly becoming part of the standard economic toolkit. They enable economists to derive new predictions, new policy recommendations, and new welfare implications, across fields including labor economics, public finance, development, macroeconomics, game theory, and many more.
