Danny Kahneman and Amos Tversky, in developing Behavioral Economics, upset the conventional wisdom that human beings were rational and relied on perfect reasoning strategies. Kahneman and Tversky demonstrated people use heuristics (short cuts) to make decisions. Gary Klein, an expert in how we make decisions, does not dispute the enormous contribution of Behavioral Economics, but he thinks we need to create a positive cognitive psychology that takes into account our ability to have insights and make sense of complex and dynamic situations. Join Dr. Kent Bottles to try to better understand how humans make decisions, both wise and unwise, in the real world.
Fee: $41.00
