    The core of this thesis is based on three essays. While the individual parts can be read independently, all three essays are connected by taking on a behavioral view on accounting and economics. The first essay allows managerial behavior to deviate from perfect rationality, examining the influence of managerial overconfidence on cost behavior. The second essay draws on the concept of investor sentiment and is concerned with real consequences that arise from less than perfectly rational investor behavior. The third essay applies the concept of limited attention to the field of behavioral energy economics, examining which factors drive consumers' attention devoted to fuel-efficient technologies.
