Lecture no. 10 from the course: Behavioral Economics: When Psychology and Economics Collide

Comparison—Apples and Oranges

Taught by Professor Scott Huettel | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Economics & Finance Courses

This lecture explores how people create and compare the subjective values of different options in order to make a decision.
