As Herbert Simon insisted, human rationality is bounded. Three kinds of bounds may be identified. First, human beings are not good natural logicians, and consequently not good natural statisticians either; second, the premises for logical operations are often doubtful, and even more likely to be incomplete; and third, cognition is a scarce resource, and so rationality has to be applied very selectively. Within conventional econpomics bounded rationality is usually treated (if it is treated at all) as a kind of cognitive failure; but this perspective diverts attention from the remarkable human capability to create and use patterns – which is the common theme of Smith, Marshall and Hayek.
