Chapter 28 (2015) shows the enormous influence of behavioral economics on just about every subfield of economics. The topic of Chapter 25 (1988) is risk perception. Risk perception is the study of the subjective perception of hazards and risks such as nuclear accidents or a­ ccidents involving motor vehicles. Slovic (1987) published an influential review article on risk ­perception, putting forth the puzzle of the large gap between lay and expert perceptions of risk. Part of this gap can be explained by the influence of some of the heuristics and biases proposed by Kahneman and Tversky (Chapter 3, 1988), but much of this gap is due to other factors that influence lay perceptions of risk, such as controllability or the catastrophic potential of a risk (see also Johnson & Tversky, 1983).
