H112: Behavioral Economics: $1 Today or $2 Tomorrow? in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
Why do we spend money the way we do? Why do people love free giveaways so much? Is receiving $1 today better than receiving $2 tomorrow? Classical economics assumes that people make "rational" money decisions. But as you've probably noticed in your real life, we don't always make great choices (for example, that shirt you bought and never wear...) Behavioral economics tries to address this. We'll talk about some common mistakes we make in our daily decisions and discuss ways to fight these biases.
