  1. Is FEAR Killing your Investments?

    Two surveys last month show that many investors are still afraid of the stock market — a fear created during the financial crisis five years ago — and those investors have not been taking their shots.

    As a result, they have missed out, not only on the rally of the last few years, but on the opportunity to be better positioned for what happens next.

    Any thoughts?


  2. The Behavioral Economics Behind the Individual PP-ACA Mandate

    Thanks to analyses like these, the Disease Management Care Blog is coming down with a tiresome case of individual mandatosis complicated by penaltyalgia.


  3. More on Behavioral Psychology

    Behavioral Finance is a relatively recent revolution in finance that applies insights from all of the social sciences to finance. New decision-making models incorporate psychology and sociology, among other disciplines, to explain economic and financial phenomenon, such as erratic stock price variations.

    Psychological patterns such as overconfidence and perceived kinks in the value function seem to impact financial decision-making, but are not included in classical theories such as the Expected Utility Theory.

    Kahneman and Tversky’s Prospect Theory addresses such issues and sheds light on irrational deviations from traditional decision-making models.


  4. It’s Hard to Change Physician Behavior

    Like some kind of perpetual motion machine, it’s hard to get physicians to change their behavior to do stuff.

    It’s even harder to get them to change their behavior to stop doing stuff.


  5. Hormonal Influence?

    Scientists seeking to replicate behaviors on the financial trading floor have found that increasing a person’s hormone levels can lead to a spike in risk-taking.

    A study published last week by Scientific Reports concludes that changes in both cortisol and testosterone could play a destabilizing role in financial markets.
