Behavioral Economics: The Science of Judgment and Decision Making, and Its Applications to One’s Life
Behavioral Economics (BE) is a recent science combining psychology findings about persistent biases in human Judgment and Decision Making (JDM) with economics models. BE became highly popular after one of its founders Daniel Kahneman received a 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics. In this lecture, I will review BE basics, describe several experimental findings, and discuss the value of this knowledge in one’s life.
Victoria Fineberg holds BS in Mechanical Engineering (ME) (Ukraine), MSME (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign), and MS in Cyber Security (National Defense University). She is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) and a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Victoria’s Cyber Security MS thesis was on the topic of using Behavioral Economics in Cyberspace Operations. Victoria is passionate about applying BE principles to all aspects on one’s life.
