Never mind the pollocks – sustainable fish drive reflects behavioural economics

Never mind the pollocks – sustainable fish drive reflects behavioural economics | Behavioral Economics | Scoop.it
the substance is the one mile of gas saved, the one nonGMO seed planted, the one meal served completely homegrown. no one of us needs to save millions of everything. millions of us need to save one of something.

sure, this is applied be-con. its top-down, because someone seeks to influence consumer behaviour.

there already exists a model for capturing social economics benefits for projects like this - create a social space for the consumers who tried (or are interested in) the new species and.the economic beneficiaries (vendors, supply chain, and so on) of this newly visible market. the beneficiaries, if they are on the ball, should be eager to help offset the price burden of the new species by tailoring offers that resonate with the feelings of this group.

this helps in two ways: it raises absolute awareness of the power of the people to influence positive change. and, it increases the contact density of the market. the recent Pew research into online social interactions indicate this result could contribute nearly as much as adapting our diet.
