Description:Workshop on Ś“New Risks and Loss AversionŚ” - Behavioral Economics
Location:Rotterdam, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands
Subject:The strongest, but also most volatile, factor affecting risk attitudes is loss aversion (Ś“losses loom larger than gainsŚ”). It was given its proper place in decision theory by Daniel Kahneman. Most risks we face are new, with no past statistics available (ambiguity). This two-day conference concerns risky decisions with a central place for loss aversion and ambiguity. These concepts are central in economics and psychology, Kahneman's areas of expertise, but also in any other field where decision theory is applied, including health, game theory, business, politics, insurance, environment, and neuroscience. We invite presentations related to Kahneman's work on risk and ambiguity in a welcoming scholarly environment. [gemŐ_ŐŔ den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
