The study of humans and their (apparently) irrational interactions with the world
The emerging science of Behavioural Economics is increasing our understanding of the way we make decisions. This knowledge is helping businesses develop more profitable models, regulators more effective controls and governments more efficient incentives.
This session will look at the theories underpinning the science and consider some of the more common decision errors.
By the end of the seminar you will have a greater insight into the ways a gentle nudge may be more effective than a hefty shove!
