Behavioral Economics and its Relevance to Health Care Tell a Friend about this Course

The recent field of behavioral economics suggests that previous theories may have misled us about how humans actually make decisions. Using Nobel Prize winner (Economics, 2002) Daniel Kahneman’s book Thinking Fast and Slow and Nobel Prize winner (Economics, 2017) Richard Thaler's book Nudge as guides, Kent Bottles will explore how humans use heuristics (shortcuts) to make decisions that are sometimes wise and sometimes simply wrong and discuss how the principles of behavioral economics can nudge patients to become more healthy and doctors to accept changes necessary to reform our health care system.
