About Behavioral Economics

Behavioral Economics was once a disputed subject and viewed as non-mainstream economics. It combines behavior analysis theory with the economic operation rule. Moreover, it uses people's psychological phenomena and deviation analysis investment behavior to forecast the market situation. Nowadays, Behavioral Economics is gradually breaking the concept of efficient market and rational behavior in traditional economics. It argues that there widely exists some "irrational" behaviors in the market, whereas in most cases, the market generally remains in its highly effective state. At present, the research methods and achievements of Behavioral Economics are widely accepted in both the academia and the public.

In this program,

Professor Wang introduces common behavioral biases such as mental accounting and overconfidence, and explains the causes of human behavioral biases in modern society from an evolutionary perspective. By introducing the rational basis of these seemingly irrational behaviors, we hope that this program will lead you towards a preliminary understanding of behavioral economics. It is believed that this theory of "making economics more human" will provide theoretical and practical guidance for people in many practical decisions, such as project investment and capital management.
