Publicidade

Daniel Kahneman é um teórico da finança comportamental , a qual combina a economia com a ciência cognitiva para explicar o comportamento aparentemente irracional da gestão do risco pelos seres humanos.

É conhecido por sua colaboração com Amos Tversky e outros, estabelecendo uma base cognitiva para os erros humanos comuns, usando a heurística e desenvolvendo a "prospect theory".

Kahneman viveu sua infância em Paris, França e regressou para a Palestina em 1946. Obteve licenciatura em matemática e psicologia na Universidade Hebraica de Jerusalém em 1954, após o qual serviu nas forças de defesa israelitas, principalmente no seu departamento de psicologia. Em 1958 foi para os Estados Unidos, obtendo um doutorado em psicologia pela Universidade da Califórnia em Berkeley em 1961.

Atualmente é professor da Universidade de Princeton e um membro da Universidade Hebraica. Foi laureado em 2002 com o Prémio do Banco da Suécia em Ciências Económicas em memória de Alfred Nobel , apesar de ser um psicólogo e não um economista. De facto, Kahneman nunca fez qualquer cadeira em economia, afirmando que aquilo que sabe sobre o assunto foi o que ele e Tversky aprenderam com colaboradores como Richard Thaler e Jack Knetsch.

„People who make a difference do not die alone. Something dies in everyone who was affected by them.“

— Daniel Kahneman
Context: People who make a difference do not die alone. Something dies in everyone who was affected by them. Amos made a great deal of difference, and when he died, life was dimmed and diminished for many of us. There is less intelligence in the world. There is less wit. There are many questions that will never be answered with the same inimitable combination of depth and clarity. There are standards that will not be defended with the same mix of principle and good sense. Life has become poorer. There is a large Amos-shaped gap in the mosaic, and it will not be filled. It cannot be filled because Amos shaped his own place in the world, he shaped his life, and even his dying. And in shaping his life and his world, he changed the world and the life of many around him. About the death of his long-time collaborator Amos Tversky on 5 June 1996.

„Our comforting conviction that the world makes sense rests on a secure foundation: our almost unlimited ability to ignore our ignorance.“

„Money does not buy you happiness, but lack of money certainly buys you misery.“

„I am my remembering self, and the experiencing self, who does my living, is like a stranger to me.“

— Daniel Kahneman, Thinking, Fast and Slow
Context: An experiment about your next vacation will allow you to observe your attitude to your experiencing self: At the end of the vacation, all pictures and videos will be destroyed. Furthermore, you will swallow a potion that will wipe out all your memories of the vacation. How would this affect your vacation plans? How much would you be willing to pay for it, relative to a normally memorable vacation? My impression is that the elimination of memories greatly reduces the value of the experience.Imagine a painful operation during which you will scream in pain and beg the surgeon to stop. However, you are promised an amnesia-inducing drug that will wipe out any memory of the episode. Here again, my observation is that most people are remarkably indifferent to the pains of their experiencing self. Some say they don’t care at all. Others share my feeling, which is that I feel pity for my suffering self but not more than I would feel for a stranger in pain.I am my remembering self, and the experiencing self, who does my living, is like a stranger to me.
