Masterclasses 1 - 2

2m1: Behavioural aspects

Michael Norton

This lecture addresses the behavioural aspects of human decision making. Elements such as trust, risk-aversion, prospect theory and path entrenchment are discussed and it is explained how they play a role in the (non-)adoption of circular practices.

2m2: Welfare and welfare distribution

Michael Norton

This other lecture is about the effects of welfare and welfare distribution of a transition to a circular society. Where does the recycling take place and on which primary resources do we economize? In other words: who gains a livelihood and who loses it?
