The Society for the Advancement of Behavioral Economics (SABE) -founded in 1982– is a community of scholars committed to developing behavioral economic analysis.

Historically, this has involved relaxing standard economic assumptions, or moving beyond them, to consider insights from other disciplines including psychology, sociology, anthropology, neuroscience, history, political science, and biology. With its more flexible set of tools, including experimentation, behavioral economics is progressively demonstrating the capability of explaining a larger set of economic and behavioral phenomena.

SABE is intended to be a forum for particularly creative work, a society through which scholars from different disciplines can meet and develop productive collaborations.
