A Short Course in Behavioral Economics

From edge.org a penetrating short course in behavioral economics. Taught by Richard Thaler, Sendhil Mullainathan, and Daniel Kahneman.

“RICHARD H. THALER is considered to be one of the founders of behavioral economics—the study of how thinking and emotions affect individual economic decisions and the behavior of markets. He investigates the implications of relaxing the standard economic assumption that everyone in the economy is rational and selfish, instead entertaining the possibility that some of the agents in the economy are sometimes human.”
