7.1 Introduction

We have taken a brief excursion through three different perspectives on decision making (the rational-economic, the psychological and the social) and we have considered how we think about risk from these different perspectives. How can you use these ideas to improve your own and others' decision making?

Brown rats are rodents and almost all rodents use their continuously growing incisors to feed on seeds, nuts, grass, stems
