Cooperation with COVID-19 Safety Guidelines: Political Affiliation and Fundamental Needs

Daniel DeCaro

  • Associate Professor of Urban and Public Affairs and Psychological and Brain Sciences; Director of the Social Decision Making and Sustainability Lab, University of Louisville

Daniel DeCaro is an interdisciplinary social scientist with expertise in social and cognitive psychology, behavioral economics, law, and political science.

Join us for a discussion on how Humanistic Rational Choice Theory (HRCT) can explain attitudes toward compliance of state and national government leaders during the COVID-19 pandemic. DeCaro will present survey data from an NSF project that examined attitudes from four US states (CA, NY, FL, TX) at the center of the pandemic, demonstrating that Republicans and Democrats perceive governance systems differently, impacting COVID compliance.
