Elogio del decluttering, de Tim Harford

Por una parte, nunca hubiera esperado algo así de Harford, pero como él bien explica, la cosa tiene toda su lógica económica...
All this may seem strange talk from an economist, because economics is often associated with a kind of crass materialism. The field no doubt has flaws but materialism isn’t one of them. If anything, the blind spot in classical economics is that the last word on what consumers value is what consumers choose. Behavioural economics, famously, has a different view — it says that we do make systematic mistakes. But until reading Kondo’s book, I didn’t realise that in every overstuffed bookshelf and cluttered cupboard those mistakes were manifesting themselves.
Si es que, aunque no lo parezca en absoluto, muchos de los blogs que leo están conectados (será ese confirmation bias tan difícil de eliminar.... )
