Abstract

Albert Spencer takes a close look at our decision making our actions. In other words, if we believe something is true, then it will affect our behaviour. Beliefs and actions are inseparable; therefore, beliefs are not private affairs but public events that have consequences. Could there be an event that better indicates how private beliefs have public consequences than a pandemic?
