Title:  Behavioural Economics Panel Discussion on the works of Richard Thaler, Recipient of the Economics Nobel Prize 2017

Events Details:

For his contributions to behavioural economics, the 2017 Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to American economist Richard Thaler. Dr. Thaler is known to have popularized the notion of “nudge”, giving birth to the field of behavioural finance and improvements to various public policies. But what gave rise to behavioural economics as a field? Why does it matter? How did Mr. Thaler’s work influence public policies and the world of finance? Beyond theories, what are some of the practical applications of the concepts of “nudge” in the public and social spheres in Canada? 

The event is being organized jointly by the CFA Society Ottawa and the Association des économistes québécois.  

The conference and discussions will be held in English and French.
