Herbert Simon used the analogy of the blades of a scissor to explain human decision making ... one blade represents cognitive capabilities of the decision maker, the other blade represents the situational context within which the decision maker must choose. Recognition of this scissors gives rise to the idea of "ecological rationality" --- developed by Gerd Gigerenzer and also deployed consistently by Vernon Smith to discuss markets and institutions.
The open-ended model of choice that follows from a persistent and consistent subjectivism --- as developed by Menger, Mises, Hayek, Lachmann, Kirzner, Buchanan, Shackle, Rizzo, and Wagner --- fits most comfortably into this conceptualization of the interaction between cognitive capabilities and the situational context of decision making. As an operational research program in political economy, this aligns with the empirical strategy found at the intersection of historical and rational choice institutionalism.
This past week Gigerenzer gave an outstanding talk in our PPE workshop. As he stressed, you cannot turn decision making under uncertainty into complicated decision making under risk and do justice to the way that capable but fallible human beings choose.
