Why People Make Bad Decisions About Money
Daniel Kahneman Interview ('Big Think')
Daniel Kahneman discusses how bias affects our decision choices in spending. Emotion plays a significant role in how we make these decisions.

We struggle to look at the bigger picture the broader view- we engage in 'narrow framing' during these choices. Individuals who are more numerate tend to make broader and therefore more effective financial decisions.
