Professor Daniel Kahneman – How We Make Decisions – interview – Goldstein on Gelt – Jan. 2011
Professor Daniel Kahneman is an Israeli-American psychologist and the 2002 Nobel Laureate notable for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision making and behavioral economics with Amos Tversky as well as others. He established a cognitive basis for common human errors. Currently, he is a professor at Emeritus of Psychology and Public Affairs at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School. He is also a founding partner of the Greatest Good, a business and philanthropy consulting company.
He was born in Tel-Aviv in 1934 and spent his early childhood years in Paris where his parents emigrated from Lithuania in early 1920s. His family was in Paris when it was occupied by Nazi Germany in 1940. His father was picked up in the first major round up of French Jews but was released after six weeks due to the intervention of his employer and the family was on the run for the remainder of the war. Eventually, he and his family moved to the British mandate for Palestine, which was very soon to become Israel in 1948.
