I quote the last two paragraphs: “Neoliberalism teaches and encourages individualistic and competitive behaviour. Our common narratives tell us that “you can’t trust anyone,” and that people are by nature lazy and selfish unless given incentives. We are taught that human nature is inherently greedy and we have to accept this as a fact of nature. In reality, there is a lot more evidence that humans are inherently cooperative, and tend to want to share from an early age. We have both a tendency to be individualistic and selfish and a tendency to be cooperative and altruistic. How we organise our politics, economies, and therefore societies determines which of these instincts will be nourished and encouraged to flourish.” My response: A great deal of research in Economics supports this less-dogmatic view of human nature. Within mainstream Economics, much of this work has been conducted in recent decades by what are known as behavioral economists. This research has utilized a broad range of empirical methodologies. Outside the mainstream, Institutionalists are among the heterodox economists who notably agree with the nuanced view of human nature advocated in the post above.
