Politicians are humans, and humans do not always reason syllogistically from premises to conclusions. The problem is amplified when political decisions have to be made fast, under conditions of uncertainty, with either not enough information or far too much. That's where heuristics come in -- and Professor Barbara Vis has built her career on studying how and when they are used, and what we can do about it.
