Thinking Fast and Slow

The people that really started the  behavioural economics movement are Daniel Kahneman and his late research partner Amos Tversky. Apart from the fact that in 2002, Daniel Kahneman won the (pseudo) Nobel in economic scienceDaniel Kahneman wrote “Thinking Fast and Slow”.  

Another Economics Nobel was given out for behavioual economics in 2017 to  Richard Thaler. Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein wrote “Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth and Happiness”

Also,  Freakanomics have interviewed Richard Thaler in this entertaining episode.
