This ebook examines the most recent findings from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics, focusing on how people make decisions regarding their finances when faced with real-world challenges. The book is broken up into three parts that investigate the process of financial decision making on three different levels: the level of the brain; the level of society; and the level of an individual decision-maker. The final part of the book discusses the implications of these findings for future research.
Among the subjects that were discussed are:
- Getting older and making decisions about money
- Crashing of the stock market and inflated market prices
- Neurological and endocrine underpinnings of economic decision making
- Methods of coping with the uncertainty that is present when making financial decisions
- Personality, cognitive ability, emotional states, and economic choices are all taken into consideration.
- Perspectives on borrowing money, gambling, contributing to charity, and paying taxes from a psychological point of view
Researchers in and outside of the field of psychology, such as consumer psychologists, decision-making experts, and behavioral economists, will find the Psychological Perspectives on Financial Decision Making (PDF) to be a useful resource.
