I am so happy that sharing my discussion with Dan Ariely about behavioral economics!
Dan Ariely is a professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University. Most of us know his famous books probably, The Upside of Irrationality and Predictably Irrational. Big thanks to Prof. Ariely talking to me on what we can learn from behavioral economics and its relation with neuromarketing and big data. I hope that will guide you as well! 🙂
- Professor Ariely, can you please explain, as marketers, why should we benefit from behavioral economics and what can we learn from it?
Behavioral economics is a field that tries to understand the true motivations of human beings and trying to understand what are the triggers for this motivations and in fact it is hard to imagine it has any disciplines has interested in human behaviors that could not benefit from behavioral economics. You know, what is truely motivating people is hard of try to understand, what to create, what to build and once we know then how to convience people to get it.
