NIGHT TALK - How is it that people, while often regarded as rational homo economicus, can nevertheless be tempted to make impulse purchases or take wrong decisions? (language: Dutch).

In this lecture, Dr. Andreas Wismeijer will go into the psychological aspects of temptation. How is it that people, while often regarded as rational homo economicus, can nevertheless be tempted to make impulse purchases or take wrong decisions? Are there tried and tested methods to influence other people’s behavior? It will become clear in this lecture that the influence of free will is overestimated on a regular basis.
