What drives political opinions? New episode of the ECONtribute Wirtschaftspodcast

14.06.2024

Why do people perceive the same facts differently? What does this mean for their political opinions? And how can politicians deal with this?

Sonja Settele, Professor at ECONtribute at the University of Cologne, researches, among other things, how opinions are formed and influence human decisions. We talk about the role that people’s beliefs play in economic policy decisions, whether more factual knowledge prevents polarisation and how well people can actually assess economic facts.

This episode is about politics, polarisation and petitions.
