Daniel Kahneman- Economics in Ten

From the episode description:

"Did you hear about the psychologist that won the Nobel Prize for Economics? Sounds like the start of a joke doesn’t it? But in 2002 Daniel Kahneman won the award for the revolutionary work on "prospect theory" carried out with his colleague and friend Amos Tversky. Their work changed the course of economics by introducing the world to behavioural economics. So if you’ve ever felt like you have been tricked into buying something at a higher price or have fallen into the trap of just following the crowd, then you could do with knowing some of the behavioural biases that mean you don't quite conform to the model of homo economicus aka rational economic man (or woman). Guiding you through Kahneman’s life and ideas as always are Pete and Gav, your friendly neighbourhood economists. "
