Thinking Money: The Psychology Behind our Best and Worst Financial Decisions.
If you’ve ever made a financial decision you regretted the next day, you’re not alone. In fact, as the emerging field of behavioral economics reveals, we’re practically hard-wired to overspend, an activity that lights up the brain’s pleasure centers. Yet when it comes to managing money, changing our behavior is possible. Travel from Wall Street to Main Street, and from the halls of academia to the Santa Barbara wine country, to find out how our brains – and the marketplace – affect how we deal with money.
Thinking Money explores:
- Ways behavioral biases affect your financial decisions
- Why too many choices can be paralyzing
- How a good nudge can help you achieve your financial goal
- How technology can be embraced to help you save money
- Steps you can take to achieve greater financial security
Viewers will learn valuable actions and resources they can use to help make better financial decisions. The movie will be followed by a discussion with Kathy Sweedler, Consumer Economics Educator of University of Illinois Extension.
