About Dr. Richard Thaler
As one of the pioneers of the Behavioral Economics field, Dr. Thaler's work has sought to understand the human element of personal finance and the emotional and behavioral biases that can affect and wreak havoc on the day-to-day financial and investment decisions of millions.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences explained that awarding the Nobel Prize to Dr. Thaler was due to the fact that his "contributions have built a bridge between the economic and psychological analyses of individual decision-making. His empirical findings and theoretical insights have been instrumental in creating the new and rapidly expanding field of behavioral economics."*
