Classical economic theory mainly examines decision making from a normative perspective. Social and cognitive psychology's view of decision making is more descriptive. This article presents a structured synthesis of a third stream of research, which intersects economics and psyhology, and is known as Behavioral Decision Theory. This stream of research shows that decision makers often deviate from prescritive norms. This article explains why such deviations occur and what they imply for marketing.
