Example text

As Kahneman explains it, nobody has ever figured out a perfect technique for dealing with uncertainty. Consequently, in making choices and decisions, we tend to overweight certain outcomes relative to uncertain outcomes, even when the uncertain outcomes have a high probability. * Invariance means that if A is preferred to B and B is preferred to C, rational people should prefer A to C. In the case above, if the rational decision in the first set is 200 lives saved for certain, saving 200 lives for certain should be the rational decision in the second set as well.

It is the rationally reached decision that is the exception. 11 Thaler says he could hardly contain himself after reading this article. A year later, he met Kahneman and Tversky, and he has followed in their path ever since. 12 Thaler’s views on rationality are consistent with Kahneman’s and Tversky’s, but his language is more colorful than theirs. When Kahneman says: “I am now quick to reject any description of our work as demonstrating human irrationality. ” In 1957, Nobel Laureate Herbert Simon proposed a calmer and more elaborate development of Thaler’s distinction between blithering idiots and hyperrational automatons.

Rational analysis will always find a solution. In more recent work, Kahneman has placed much emphasis on Simons’s conceptual work in this area. Thaler has also put his money where his mouth is. He is a principal in an investment management firm known as Fuller & Thaler, a partnership with Russell Fuller, another enthusiast for Behavioral Finance who has been Chairman of the Finance Department at Washington State University, author of an investment textbook, and a Wall Street security analyst. Daniel Kahneman is an outside director of the firm.
