Title

Behavioral Economics: The Science of Judgment and Decision Making, and Its Applications to One’s Life

Description

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.
