When it comes to managing our money, there is often a gap between knowing what’s good for us and actually doing it. Actions we take (or don’t take) often depend on other factors, like our mood, the cost (in effort/time/money) or whether we know other people doing it?
Join Dr. Marco A. Palma, Director of the Behavior Laboratory at Texas A&M University, August 12 from 10-11 a.m. for “Using Behavioral Science to Make Better Money Decisions.”
Dr. Palma will share stories of how we humans make suboptimal decisions without realizing it. He’ll also introduce strategies, like “commitment devices,” that can help you override your unconscious brain biases and achieve your money goals.
