By adding only one or two parameters to standard models. Particular parameter values then often reduce the behavioral model to the standard one, and the behavioral model can be pitted against the standard model by estimating parameter values. Once parameter values are pinned down, the behavioral model can be applied just as widely as the standard one. Adding behavioral assumptions often does make the models less tractable. However, many of the papers represented in this volume show that it can be done.

Basic Concepts and Research Findings The field of behavioral decision research, on which behavioral economics has drawn more than any other subfield of psychology, typically classifies research into two categories: judgment and choice.
