Uwe Sundé at the Paris-Saclay Economics Seminar

The next Economics Seminar of Paris-Saclay will be held on Thursday, December 15 from 12h15 to 13h15. Uwe Sundé (U. Munich) will present his paper “Complex Decisions and Performance Under Cognitively Bounded Rationality”, co-authored with Anthony Strittmatter and Dainis Zegners.

Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach to analyze human decision making and decision quality in a setting in which fully rational decisions are ruled out due to cognitive constraints: chess. The identification approach contrasts human behavior with a computational benchmark of cognitively bounded rationality based on the algorithms contained in modern chess engines. The results document that behavioral deviations are not necessarily associated with worse performance. Additional evidence shows that behavior is related to asymmetric evaluation, time pressure, fatigue, and complexity. Faster decisions are associated with more frequent deviations, but also with better performance, suggesting that intuition and expertise might be important behavioral factors.
