Creatures of bounded rationality
This chapter presents a 1995 commentary on decision making by doctors and patients. Studies show that in many situations, a decision seems to be influenced more by the threat of a loss than by the possibility of an equivalent gain. Preferences between gains are most often risk-averse; preferences between losses are usually risk-seeking.
