Check out this amusing and informative talk by Paul Craven, an expert consultant and speaker in behavioural economics, who recently spoke at TEDxLondonBusinessSchool on “The Mind, Markets and Magic”.
In this talk, Paul reveals why human beings have hard-wired biases and often make ‘mental shortcuts’ – whether in the field of finance, more broadly in life or even when watching a magician. He highlights some of the key biases shown by investors, as seen, for example, in stockmarket bubbles. As a member of the exclusive Magic Circle, Paul appreciates how the mind can play tricks, and delivers a talk that is highly interactive with the audience. He concludes by offering practical advice on how firms and individuals can use behavioural economics for their competitive advantage.
