During uncertain times, our lives are disrupted by different layers of culture. Our offices have shifted to our homes. Our interactions with others seem depersonalized. Our food and fun schedules no longer make sense. When it comes to our social behaviors, our past standards no longer apply. Now the real question is: What is the right thing to do in work and life during uncertainty?
In Social Economics in Uncertain Times, Amelia Sander argues that we adapt our standards to the world that surrounds us. Without guidance on what norms are, we look to what others are doing, change our behaviors, and begin to create new social and cultural standards.
Along the way, Sander reveals how working from home started an "always on" culture, food delivery is king, and friendship or relationships end in a socially distant world.
Our work and personal lives follow a strange logic. Analyzing these trends, Sander presents an exciting and innovative framework about behavior economics during a pandemic - showing how we can make better decisions in work and everyday lives.
