ARQUIVO: OCDE vs. Peer Review

Nosso método de divulgação já está ultrapassado.

Peer review has its place. But peer reviewers have blind spots. If you want to really review a paper, you need peer reviewers who can tell you if you’re missing something within the literature—and you need outside reviewers who can rescue you from groupthink. If you’re writing a paper on himmicanes and hurricanes, you want a peer reviewer who can connect you to other literature on psychological biases, and you also want an outside reviewer—someone without a personal and intellectual stake in you being right—who can point out all the flaws in your analysis and can maybe talk you out of trying to publish it.

ARQUIVO: Hierarquia de Necessidades: Nain vs Marlow (2013)

Nessa época eu estava interessado em achar uma nova forma de representar a demanda por bens, sem usar as elasticidades.

This article gives reasons as to why Maslow’s & ERG Theory of Needs is inaccurate. It also gives reasons why the same is inaccurate in an organizational perspective. The author also gives a alternative model of needs, namely the Nain Model, which is particularly applicable in an organizational perspective. This article has been written for those interested in Organizational Behaviour.

ARQUIVO: O que sabemos sobre organização das firmas (2013)

Artigo interessante e antigo do vox sobre caixas pretas, ambiente determinando design (evolução ou ECD?), focado em política de comérico externo.

Increasingly, people are pointing the finger of blame for economic woe at large firms. This column argues that organisation design is often affected by government trade policy. If firm organisation design has implications for consumer welfare in terms of prices and quality of product, evidence suggests that governments should make sure that in future, trade policy and corporate governance policy are more complementary.

ARQUIVO: Pensando com open data (2012)

MENSAGEM: Compartilhem o seu código!

Accessing the data is a key part of verifiability of scientific results, but it isn’t enough. Scientists have the burden of convincing a skeptical audience they have done everything possible to root error out of their research, and so they need to explain (and justify) the steps from data collection to final results. This is nothing new, as reproducibility has been part of the scientific method since the 1660’s, but now the reproducible research movement advocates the sharing the computer code as well as the data that generated the results in the published article.

Muitas vezes sinto falta de abordagens do lado do consumo, especialmente sobre a motivação de compra. Este livro do Saad, comentado no artigo abaixo, trabalha este ponto através da psicologia aplicada na economia. Vai para a lista de leitura.

Over the last three to four decades, the social sciences have been subject to increasing examination under an evolutionary framework. Leading the charge into consumer and marketing theory has been Gad Saad, a pioneer of evolutionary consumer psychology who was responsible for the first evolutionary psychology papers to appear in any consumer and marketing journals.
