inner chimpanzee refuses to let go. This matters to everything from economics to law.I am the most offensively possessive man on earth. I do something to things. Let me pick up an ashtray from a dime-store counter, pay for it and put it in my pocket—and it becomes a special kind of ashtray, unlike any on earth, because it’s mine. What was true of Wynand, one of the main characters in Ayn Rand’s novel The Fountainhead, may be true of everyone. From basketball tickets to waterfowl-hunting rights to classic albums, once someone owns something, he places a higher value on it than he did when he acquired it—an observation first called the endowment effect about 28 years ago by Richard Thaler, who these days works at the University of Chicago.The endowment effect was controversial for years. The idea that a squishy, irrational bit of human behaviour could affect the cold, clean and rational world of markets was a challenge to neoclassical economists. Their assumption had always been that i ...
In the aftermath of the Little India riot, I have been asked by several people about my views on it. I have resisted writing about the riot as I didn’t think I could add much more to what’s already been said by various more informed commentators. I’m also not particularly familiar with issues related to the welfare of our migrant workers.   But an interview request by Channel News Asia combined with how the riot is being characterized and rationalized by the authorities have forced me to think more deeply about the riot – its causes as well as how I think government and society more generally should respond to it. So here are my preliminary thoughts on the matter.     Resisting our Impulses   One of the things that behavioral economists and cognitive psychologists emphasize is the very human, deeply psychological tendency to respond to complex and unexpected events instinctively – what Daniel Kahneman calls “fast thinking” or what Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein (of “Nudge”) call th ...
I have been reading "Nudge" by Richard Thaler and wait for it "Cass Sunstein-that's right one of the Obama czars. The book was published in 2008, it has all the plans for the Obama care- SS and a host of other goodies they are planning for us. The main thing they advocate is that if people have too many choices(i.e. free choice) they will make mistakes, so to save us they would limit our choices and nudge us into the direction they want us to go. Because they know so much more than we do. How kind, how thoughtful-take your nudges and - The white house is infested with this kind of garbage, time to clean house(and senate).

Mental Accounting” - Richard Thaler, a pioneer in the field of Behavioural Economics and who coined the term mental accounting, defines it as “the inclination to categorise and treat money differently depending on where it comes from, where it is kept and how it is spent.” This leads to what is referred to as the gambler’s fallacy, the tendency of gamblers who lose their winnings, feeling that they haven’t lost anything at all. Precisely, like what my sister said. Thaler along with Cass Sunstein explains this in his book Nudge — Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth and Happiness. “You can also see mental accounting in action at the casino. Watch a gambler who is lucky enough to win some money early in the evening. You might see him take the money he has won and put it into one pocket and put the money he brought with him to gamble that evening (yet another mental account) into a different pocket,” write the authors. The gamblers call their winnings ‘house money’. As the authors wri ...
