Behavioural Sciences

How are Behavioural Sciences applied in our economy and society currently? What opportunities will they open up in the next 10-15 years? Which sectors can profit most? What are the risks with these tools being used for the wrong reasons?

In this week’s episode of “A Glimpse into the Future”, we talk to Iris Bohnet and Robert J. Shiller from the World Economic Forum’s Council on the Future of Behavioural Sciences. Dr Bohnet is the director of the Women and Public Policy program at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Professor Shiller is a Nobel Laureate and a Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale University.
