A Chat About Behavioral Economics

Apr 1, 2012 in Blog

One from the archives: back in 2010, ideas42 co-founder Sendhil Mullainathan and New York University’s Glenn Loury had a wide-ranging discussion about behavioral economics, which you can listen to here. Lots of food for thought in there, including the behavioral economics of the snooze button, why single mothers are like air-traffic controllers, and sundry other unexpected and (we think) fascinating tidbits guaranteed to get you thinking differently. Have a listen.
