Richard Thaler Biography

Richard H. Thaler is the 2017 recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his contributions to behavioral economics. Thaler studies behavioral economics and finance as well as the psychology of decision-making which lies in the gap between economics and psychology. He investigates the implications of relaxing the standard economic assumption that everyone in the economy is rational and selfish, instead entertaining the possibility that some of the agents in the economy are sometimes human.

Thaler is the co-author (with Cass R. Sunstein) of the global best seller "Nudge" (2008) in which the concepts of behavioral economics are used to tackle many of society’s major problems. In 2015 he published "Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics". He has authored or edited four other books: "Quasi-Rational Economics", "The Winner's Curse: Paradoxes and Anomalies of Economic Life", and "Advances in Behavioral Finance" (editor) Volumes I and II. He has published numerous articles in prominent journals such as the American Economics Review, the Journal of Finance and the Journal of Political Economy.

Thaler is a member of the National Academy of Science, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Fellow of the American Finance Association and the Econometrics Society, and in 2015 served as the President of the American Economic Association.

Before joining the University of Chicago faculty in 1995 Thaler taught at the University of Rochester and Cornell as well as visiting stints at The University of British Columbia, the Sloan School of Management at MIT, the Russell Sage Foundation and the Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Sciences at Stanford.

Originally from New Jersey, Thaler attended Case Western Reserve University where he received a bachelor's degree in 1967. Soon after, he attended the University of Rochester where he received a master's degree in 1970 and a PhD in 1974. He joined the Chicago Booth faculty in 1995.

Richard Thaler Speaking Topics

  • Paradoxes and Anomalies of Economic Life

    Richard Thaler challenges the received economic wisdom by revealing many of the paradoxes that abound even in the most painstakingly constructed transactions. He presents literate, challenging, and often funny examples of such anomalies as why most shoppers will save on one appliance only to pass up the identical savings on another, and why sports fans who wouldn't pay more than $200 for a Super Bowl ticket wouldn't sell one they own for less than $400.

  • Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness

    Nudge is about choices • how we make them and how we can make better ones. Drawing on decades of research in the fields of behavioral science and economics, Richard Thaler offers a new perspective on preventing the countless mistakes we make -bad personal investments, consumption of unhealthy foods, neglect of our natural resources• and shows us how sensible "choice architecture" can successfully nudge people toward the best decisions.
