MIB: Psychologists & Behavioral Economists

The Masters in Business pod turned 5 this summer, and I wanted to update how people could access the archives in more interesting ways. One request we get all the time is to organize the shows by categories for those interested in a deep topical dive. This is the second such exploration — the 1st one was on VCs.

I interviewed Nobel Laureate Robert Shiller this week for the 2nd time (note to Michael & Ben: Its “Bob”). That pod will be out in 2 weeks when his new book, Narrative Economics, is officially released, so let’s use this opportunity to look at all of the behaviorists and psychologists we have had on MIB:
