Description Classical finance incorporates fully rational, unemotional agents; financial decisions are made without the influence of emotions or personal characteristics. Much recent study contradicts this view. By examining psychological factors known to influence individual choice and financial decision-making we can identify behavioural biases that are both reliable and exploitable. With care, many of these biasis can be avoided. Prerequisite: FINE 5200 3.0
