According to Steven Pinker, Daniel Kahneman is "the most important psychologist alive today." His work on decision making and irrational economic choices has made him one of a very small group of non-economists who have earned a Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. Kahneman joins us to discuss how and why we make the decisions we do, and how that can help us understand politics, the economy and even the way we grocery shop.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Daniel Kahneman, professor of psychology emeritus at Princeton University and author of books including "Thinking, Fast and Slow"
