Richard Thaler Book Tour - Boston
May 20, 2015: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Chicago Booth is proud to announce a reception with Richard H. Thaler, Charles R. Walgreen Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics on May 20.
The Charles Hotel
1 Bennett Street
Professor Thaler is currently on tour to promote his latest book, Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics.
Richard Thaler has spent his career studying the radical notion that the central agents in the economy are humans—predictable, error-prone individuals. Misbehaving is his arresting, frequently hilarious account of the struggle to bring an academic discipline back down to earth—and change the way we think about economics, ourselves, and our world.
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.
Chicago Booth alumni are also welcome to join Professor Thaler for a public talk at The Harvard Bookstore at 6:00 p.m. For more information, visit the event page here.
