No book I've read does a better job explaining in a calm and objective fashion, why so many policies of the US government make no sense. This is not a political book

No book I've read does a better job explaining in a calm and objective fashion, why so many policies of the US government make no sense. This is not a political book. Instead, Baron applies the findings of cognitive psychology to examine irrational attitudes where they do the most harm, in politics. His main thesis is that a number of rules of thumb, or "moral intuitions" are used by everyone from kids to consultants to make even the most serious decisions.

This book presents my current thinking about what is important in the psychology of thinking and decision making and how it relates to questions of public interest. I try to provide sufficient references so that an academic reader could track down the source of these ideas. The ideas here are a continuation of those presented in an article I wrote for Behavioral and Brain Sciences in 1994, titled & Decisions.

But instead of using these principles as rules of thumb, we often treat them as absolutes and ignore the consequences of following them blindly. In Judgment Misguided, Jonathan Baron explores our well-meant and deeply felt personal intuitions about what is right and wrong, and how they affect the public domain.

In Judgment Misguided, Jonathan Baron explores our well-meant and deeply felt personal intuitions about what is right and wrong, and how they affect the public domain. Baron argues that when these intuitions are valued in their own right, rather than as a means to another end, they often prevent us from achieving the results we want. Focusing on cases where our intuitive principles take over public decision making, the book examines some of our most common intuitions and the ways they can be misused

People often follow intuitive principles of decision making, ranging from group loyalty to the belief that nature is benign. But instead of using these principles as rules of thumb, we often treat them as absolutes and ignore the consequences of following them blindly. In Judgment Misguided, Jonathan Baron explores our well-meant and deeply felt personal intuitions about what is right and wrong, and how they affect the public domain. Baron argues that when these intuitions are valued in their own right, rather than as a means to another end, they often prevent us from achieving the results we want. Focusing on cases where our intuitive principles take over public decision making, the book examines some of our most common intuitions and the ways they can be misused. According to Baron, we can avoid these problems by paying more attention to the effects of our decisions. Written in a accessible style, the book is filled with compelling case studies, such as abortion, nuclear power, immigration, and the decline of the Atlantic fishery, among others, which illustrate a range of intuitions and how they impede the public's best interests. Judgment Misguided will be important reading for those involved in public decision making, and researchers and students in psychology and the social sciences, as well as everyone looking for insight into the decisions that affect us all.
