Researcher biography

Honorary Associate Professor Peter Earl has over four decades of experience as a behavioural economist. Although this is the area in which his contributions are best known, his work has always been pluralistic in its method, with a focus on bringing together insights from Austrian, Behavioural, Evolutionary, Institutional and Post Keynesian economics. Much of Professor Earl’s work is also interdisciplinary, intersecting with entrepreneurial studies, management, marketing, psychology and sociology and influenced by ideas from the philosophy of science.  His current major project is a book entitled Principles of Behavioral Economics: Bringing Together Old, New and Evolutionary Approaches.
