About The Institute for New Economic Thinking was created to broaden and accelerate the development of new economic thinking that can lead to solutions for the great challenges of the 21st century. The havoc wrought by our recent global financial crisis has vividly demonstrated the deficiencies in our outdated current economic theories, and shown the need for new economic thinking – right now. The Institute is supporting this fundamental shift in economic thinking through research funding, community building, and spreading the word about the need for change. We already are a global community of thousands of new economic thinkers, ranging from Nobel Prize winning economists to teachers and students who have emerged out from the shadows of prevailing economic thought, attracted by the promise of a free and open economic discourse. Grants The Institute awards individual grants each year to individuals or teams proposing research in new economic thinking. Research Programs Conferences Partnerships

neaman.org תכנית פורום אנרגיה: היבטים פסיכולוגיים והתנהגותיים של חיסכון באנרגיה Metaphors shape our thoughts in ways we don't even realize What has the ability to influence your opinions, in some cases, even more than your own political party? A metaphor, as it turns out. When we think about metaphor, we might think about how we typically learn about metaphor in school: as a poetic device or a rhetorical flourish. But, metaphors are not simply confined to the world of poetry—they are all around us. Emerging psychological research tells us that something as simple as a single metaphor can have consequences for how we think. In a recent Stanford study, participants were presented with brief passages about crime in a hypothetical city named Addison. Simply changing a few words in a passage dramatically changed people’s ideas of how crime should be dealt with. Not just a poetic device UC Berkeley cognitive linguist George Lakoff has proposed that the way we think about concepts is fundamentally metaphorical. The metaphors we choose to use can dramatically impact people’s perceptions in ways that have real-world consequences.
Japan has found a ‘semi-infinite’ deposit of rare earth minerals, enough to supply the world for centuries to come Deep sea mud off the coast of Japan contains enough rare earth metals to supply the world for centuries to come, a new study reveals. The study published this week in Scientific Reports says the deposit, which lies within the Japanese exclusive economic zone, contains 16 million tons of rare-earth oxides, enough to meet the demand for yttrium for 780 years, europium for 620 years, terbium for 420 years and dysprosium for 730 years. The deposit “has the potential to supply these metals on a semi-infinite basis to the world,” the study said. Rare earth elements are used extensively in technology such as smart phones, electric and hybrid cars, rechargeable batteries and screen display panels. The find could be a game changer for major electronics manufacturer Japan which has been at the mercy of the world’s largest supplier China. In 2010, China cut its export quotas on rare earth minerals by 40 per cent and prices soared.
Root Solutions and the Story of Stuff | Smart Support with T4CI It’s very exciting to see one of our projects, Root Solutions, featured for the cool work that they are doing, and what better place to be featured than on the Story of Stuff Project blog? Root Solutions is dedicated to providing conservationists and policy makers with tools and resources informed by the proven methods of behavioral science, allowing them to create more effective campaigns, polices and strategies that reflect how people process information and make decisions. With techniques like, “green nudges,” people can be motivated to use behavior that is both good for them and good for the environment. The project is the brainchild of Nya Van Leuvan and Rod Fujita, who met at the Environmental Defense Fund where they led the introduction of decision science to their colleagues.

A Cognitive Trick for Solving Problems Creatively Many experts argue that creative thinking requires people to challenge their preconceptions and assumptions about the way the world works. One common claim, for example, is that the mental shortcuts we all rely on to solve problems get in the way of creative thinking. How can you innovate if your thinking is anchored in past experience? But I’m not sure that questioning biases from your past experience and assumptions is the best path to creative problem solving — it simply does not seem to fit well with how the mind actually works. The role of thinking processes in decision making was made prominent by Daniel Kahneman and the late Amos Tversky, whose Nobel Prize–winning research argues that economic decision makers are subject to deeply held cognitive biases. Anchoring, in which people address new problems by applying decisions they have made on similar problems in the past, explains the irrationality of much economic decision making.
