The concept known as rational irrationality was popularized by economist Bryan Caplan in 2001 to reconcile the widespread existence of irrational behavior (particularly in the realms of religion and politics) with the assumption of rationality made by mainstream economics and game theory. The theory, along with its implications for democracy, was expanded upon by Caplan in his book The Myth of the Rational Voter.

  • El concepto conocido como irracionalidad racional fue popularizado por el economista Bryan Caplan en 2001 para conciliar la extendida existencia de comportamiento irracional (particularmente en las esferas de la religión y la política) con el supuesto de racionalidad creado por los economistas ortodoxos y la teoría de juegos. La teoría, junto con sus implicaciones para la democracia, fue expandida en el libro de Caplan El Mito del Votante Racional El propósito original del concepto era explicar cómo (intencionadamente) se pueden implantar políticas perjudiciales en una democracia y, al contrario de lo que dice la teoría de la elección pública convencional, Caplan postula que las malas políticas pueden ser elegidas por los votantes mismos. La teoría ha sido adoptada también por el filósofo intuicionista ético Michael Huemer como una explicación para la irracionalidad en la política. La teoría también ha sido aplicada para explicar las creencias religiosas.
  • The concept known as rational irrationality was popularized by economist Bryan Caplan in 2001 to reconcile the widespread existence of irrational behavior (particularly in the realms of religion and politics) with the assumption of rationality made by mainstream economics and game theory. The theory, along with its implications for democracy, was expanded upon by Caplan in his book The Myth of the Rational Voter. The original purpose of the concept was to explain how (allegedly) detrimental policies could be implemented in a democracy, and unlike conventional public choice theory, Caplan posited that bad policies were selected by voters themselves. The theory has also been embraced by the ethical intuitionist philosopher Michael Huemer as an explanation for irrationality in politics. The theory has also been applied to explain religious belief.
