Nobel Prize-winner Richard Thaler is a field-defining pioneer of Behavioral Economics, a field that explores the intersection of economics, finance and psychology. Co-author of the global bestseller Nudge, as well as Misbehaving, Thaler reveals how human traits such as limited cognitive abilities, lack of self-control, and pro-social preference affect economic decision-making as well as market outcomes, ultimately underscoring the human side of economics and its fascinating implications for investors, marketers, policy-makers and consumers.

Thaler's game-changing theories have been behind some of the most effective market strategies and revolutionary government and business policies. As a McKinsey article succinctly stated: "Richard Thaler is the rare academic whose ideas are being translated directly into action." His keynotes reveal groundbreaking takeaways on how to drive desired behaviors and economic outcomes and provide engaging lessons on life (and its many anomalies) in and beyond the field of economics. 
"If I had to be trapped in an elevator with any contemporary intellectual,
I’d pick Richard Thaler."
