Finance for Normal People: How Investors and Markets Behave
July 31, 2019
Behavioral finance is for normal people, like you and me, who are not irrational; we are mostly intelligent and usually "normal-smart." However, we can be "normal-foolish" and misled by cognitive errors, such as hindsight bias and overconfidence, as well as emotional errors, such as exaggerated fear and unrealistic hope.
