Abstract

Looking around the globe the same dismal scenario repeats itself: in the face of glaring evidence humans are led to make bad decisions by greed, selfishness, lack of responsibility, low capacity for taking in the bigger picture, irrational fear, bias and so forth. Our poor decision-making has large scale, potentially disastrous, consequences for millions of people. Consider, for example, the human suffering in the wake of global warming, armed conflicts and the financial crisis.
