The latter should be the exclusive concern of economics because their intensity had a critical and quantifiable influence on the determination of prices. Alfred MARSHALL shared Jevons’ view that economics should concern itself with those aspects of behavior resulting from motives whose intensity could at least indirectly be measured. Unlike Jevons, however, Marshall identified the scope of economics in the normal actions of humans whether dictated by higher or lower motives, a distinction that he thought to be of no consequence from the viewpoint of economics. Marshall was also critical of the emerging characterization of homo economicus as behaving in accordance with rational calculations of utility, arguing that people do not weigh beforehand the results of every action, whether the impulses to it come from their higher nature or their lower. Subsequent development leaned precisely toward the abstract view of human behavior as self-interested, materialistic, and perfectly rational. While Pareto laid scorn on simplistic attempts to understand concrete phenomena, as if the actions of real humans were solely driven by their economic motivations, later economists such as Lionel Robbins, Milton FRIEDMAN, or Gary BECKER, have provided different, and on the whole, positive assessments of the usefulness of the concept of homo economicus in economic theorizing.
