Share Behavioural Economics & Financial Markets: Panel Discussion and Networking Event

Event Details

Historically, economists have worked within the paradigm of "fully rational economic decision making".  In recent years many findings from psychology, experimental economics and, most recently, neuroeconomics have challenged this. "Behavioural economics", originally associated with a specific brand of psychology and economics, has now become the general term for this research field.  

Join us to hear our panel discussion on how behavioural economics has contributed to better economic and financial decision making


Steffen Huck is Head of UCL's Department of Economics where he has held a Chair since 2003. The recipient of a 2004 Philip Leverhulme Prize, his research has investigated the role of trust and fairness for competition as well as issues in bounded rationality and consumer behaviour. He serves on the editorial boards of two of the major general interest journals in economics and all three top field journals relevant for experimental economics. He has also been working as a consultant for government bodies including the Financial Services Authority (FSA), the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) and the Office of Communications (Ofcom).
