Psychology and Public Policies

I used to write a monthly column on psychology and public policies in Cerveau & Psycho (in French) with Coralie Chevallier.

Baumard, N., Chevallier, C., & André, J. B. (2018). Fairness, more than any other cognitive mechanism, is what explains the content of folk-economic beliefs. Commentary to ‘Folk-economic beliefs: An evolutionary cognitive model’ by Petersen and Boyer, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 41.

Baumard, N., (2015) Evolutionary Psychology and Public Policy, in D. Buss (Ed.) The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology, John Wiley & Sons

Baumard, N. (2014) For public policies, our evolved psychology is the problem AND the solution (Commentary to ‘Evolving the Future: Toward a Science of Intentional Change’ by Wilson, Hayes, Biglan and Embry), Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 37 (4) pp. 418-418.
