Behavioural Economics - an introduction

Why we do what we do rather than what we should do...

The emerging science of Behavioural Economics is increasing our understanding of the way we make decisions. This knowledge is helping businesses develop more profitable models, regulators more effective controls and governments more efficient incentives.

This session will look at the theories underpinning the science and consider some of the more common decision errors.

By the end of the seminar you will have a greater insight into the ways a gentle nudge may be more effective than a hefty shove!

Behavioural Economics - an introduction

22 June 2021

Theories from the field of Behavioural Economics are being used increasingly by governments, regulators and companies to 'nudge' us towards the right decision - in their eyes at least. This session explores the foundations of this emerging field of study.

What people have to say about previous events....

I cannot recommend Chadwick’s Masterclasses too highly nor say enough good things about them. Chadwick’s Masterclasses provide fresh insights and offer practical steps to build, maintain and retain value in businesses. Richard delivers clear and well-thought-out advice while challenging preconceptions. The workshops are thoroughly researched and never turn into sales presentations. I learn something every time I attend.

I have been a regular attendee at Chadwick’s business seminars for several years and without fail I have found the sessions to be useful and practical on the one hand whilst thought provoking and inspiring on the other. Many advisers can put on topical seminars, few can make you feel that you want to go on to study the subject yourself!
