The Experimental Analysis of Consumption? A Review of Advances in Behavioral Economics: Vol. 3. Substance Use and Abuse
Association for Behavior Analysis International
Behavioral economics represents an integration of various microeconomic concepts and measures with methodologies, concepts, and measures employed within the experimental analysis of behavior. Among these integrations, an experimental analysis and measurement of both response rate and consumption are among the many advances in Green and Kagel's Advances in Behavioral Economics (Vol. 3). Behavioral measures of response rate and economic measures of consumption are particularly well suited to the topics in this text--substance use and abuse--because response rate and consumption appear to capture the primary behaviors and outcomes of interest: drug seeking and drug taking, respectively.
