Against the backdrop of neoclassical economic theory, behavioral economics addresses three related questions: (1) When examined directly, what is the empirical validity of neoclassical theory's assumptions about human behavior? (2) What are the actual processes producing such behavior? (3) Given answers to the above, how should neoclassical theory be revised to improve its predictive and explanatory power? There is an old debate in economics regarding the scientific relevance of the empirical validity of a theory's assumptions (for a thorough discussion see Decision-making research in managerial accounting 33 Blaug, 1980).
Second, knowledge of economic actors' internal properties may moderate predictions about their behavior, especially in complex and unstable environments. To use Simon's (1959) metaphor, suppose the task is to predict the behavior of a liquid when poured into a bowl with an irregular shape. If the bowl were held motionless, then predicting the liquid's resting position would require little knowledge of internal properties. The assumption that the force of gravity will minimize the height of the liquid's center of gravity, coupled with a specification of the bowl's shape, is sufficient for prediction.
