Daniel Kahneman

Daniel Kahneman (from Wikipedia)

If you did get it and the short article piqued your interest, I notice a splendid and very timely article on the Harvard Business Review site. �It is co-authored by Nobel Laureate, Daniel Kahneman. Kahneman, along with his long-time co-worker Amos Tversky, are the most influential researchers in the area of cognitive bias – I would say they pretty much founded the field. Sadly, Tversky died before the Nobel Committee recognised their work in 2002 (Economics prize), and Nobel rules forbid�posthumous awards. �Kahneman said:

“I feel it is a joint prize.
We were twinned for more than a decade.”

I recommend this HBR article:�The Big Idea: Before You Make That Big Decision…
by�Daniel Kahneman,�Dan Lovallo, and�Olivier Sibony.
