2018

Een veelgestelde vraag sinds de financiële crisis is of handelaren geen inzicht hadden in de risico’s van de assets  die ze verhandelden, of dat ze hun klanten simpelweg misleidden. In deze presentatie illustreer ik aan de hand van gedragseconomisch onderzoek dat de waarheid in het midden ligt. Economische prikkels en cognitieve biases leiden tot een zelfzuchtige selectie van informatie die ethische argumenten neutraliseert en onze financiële beslissingen beïnvloedt in het nadeel van anderen. Aan bod komen zelf-deceptie, gewilde onwetendheid en wensdenken.


  • November 2017: Workshop “Moral Behavior and Calculated Ambiguity” , organized with Shaul Shalvi.
