Becker's Economic Approach - In “The Economic Approach to Human Behavior,” Gary Becker describes his explanation of “the economic approach” as being how individuals choose the price they are willing to pay for a good as a rational choice determined by the payoff of the good, based on their preferences for that good. Becker believes that prices, preferences, payoffs, and costs may include intangibles or unknowns. Thus Becker’s “economic approach to human behavior” is the belief that any human decision can be explained by a cost-benefit analysis by the decision-maker with the available information, where he/she decides the utility gained by making that choice is greater than the cost....   [tags: Economics]

The Reality Of The Strain Economics - Have you ever noticed that when you see an economically struggling society that you also see that the culture and social atmosphere is underdeveloped. When a society is struggling economically, often times the people will be more concerned with bettering the economic portion of their society rather than the cultural and social context. Food and money has a funny way of taking precedence over social and cultural activities. For example, in countries such as Brazil, in the more poverty-stricken areas, parents will often times place such an importance on making a days-wage, that often time they will leave newborns with their four or five-year old children....   [tags: Society Economy Culture] 1150 words
