Abstract

How have we made decisions about handling COVID-19? Did they take account of trade-offs to individual welfare, or were they prone to narrative bias? Amanda Henwood (LSE) discusses a recent report written with Paul Dolan (LSE) which introduces a new framework – the ABCDE of decision-making – to alert decision-makers to the narrative traps that influence their decisions, including in high-risk situations such as the pandemic.
