UCD Economics Cognitive Biases Discussion


In this class we talked about the potential neurological bases of some of the biases we’ve been discussing all semester.  It’s a big question:  Are we endowed with our cognitive biases from nature, or do we acquire them through life as a function of our environment?  Does that affect whether or not they can be overcome?  (In other words, is it possible to “short-circuit” even a bias with deep evolutionary or neurological roots?)  Are some biases more difficult to overcome than others?  If so, which ones?
