The task is to make a well-thought-out choice

  • Michiel S. de Vries

Abstract

The problems a policy maker faces when making an intuitive choice are discussed in this chapter. Three subsystems are essential: the actor system, the choice system and the calculating system. The discussion focuses on the question whether the problems that arise can be overcome using the model discussed in Chapter 1. Usually the assumption is that choices made using the model are more rational than intuitive choices and result in better outcomes. It will turn out that many of the problems regarding the choice system and the calculating system can be overcome by using the model. The actor system, however, remains a substantial factor when making choices. Because the actor system is closely related to the choice system and the calculating system, the model is not able to solve all problems concerning these systems.
