Richard Thaler Book Tour - New York City
May 18, 2015: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Chicago Booth is proud to announce a private reception with Richard H. Thaler, Charles R. Walgreen Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics.
541 Lexington Avenue
New York, New York
Professor Thaler will be on tour for his latest book, Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics.
Coupling recent discoveries in human psychology with a practical understanding of incentives and market behavior, Thaler enlightens readers about how to make smarter decisions in an increasingly mystifying world. He reveals how behavioral economic analysis opens up new ways to look at everything from household finance to assigning faculty offices in a new building, to TV game shows, the NFL draft, and businesses like Uber.
