On December 8, 2002, at Aula Magna, Stockholm University, Daniel Kahneman was presented the Nobel Prize in Economics for his brilliant and pioneering work in behavioral economics and psychology. This work was largely performed alongside his long-time research partner Amos Tversky, who died before the Nobel Prize was awarded.
Kahneman is widely regarded as the world’s most influential psychologist and one of the first to pick apart how we make decisions, and specifically how we make wrong decisions. I figured his Nobel Prize speech would be pretty interesting, and it didn’t disappoint!
