Jerry Buchko's insight:

Very interesting report from the RSA.  In addition to the useful information about these common behavioral hurdles they cite, I think that the authors present a perspective that converges with the one offered by the CFPB financial well-being report <http://goo.gl/kat5Ha>* from earlier this year on the topic of *financial education and its role in developing financial capability. And in this area, they similarly offered perspective about where there would be important opportunities for future research, including research that would study the efficacy of different pedagogical approaches to developing financial capability.

A key thought experiment, the "tragedy of the commons," is widely misunderstood, especially among certain kinds of economists. Elinor Ostrom won a Nobel Prize for showing how irrational they can be. 
Jerry Buchko's insight:

Yes, this. Solving for the tragedy of the commons... only a problem if you willfully ignore or remove community standards/social controls on selfish behavior. ,':)

 

And when we choose community standards that not only normalize, but idealize, enable, and reward this kind of selfish behavior as an exemplar of success, then, yeah, we end up with a tragedy....
