Humans vs. Econs in Splash Spring 2015
Do you usually go with your gut or think things through? Are you a planner or a doer? Why do we sometimes fail to follow through with our new year’s resolutions? Why does the last M&M matter more than all the other M&M’s? Economics is so much more than just numbers. Humans, by nature, make mistakes, and behavioral economists have found that while we sometimes overestimate our smartness, there are ways to predict the funny patterns in which we behave. In this class, we’ll teach you how to look at everyday life relative to the study of psychology and economics in the way we view choices and make decisions.
