Episode 4: Colin Camerer

Episode 4: Colin Camerer

Dr. Colin Camerer is one of the pioneers of neuroeconomics, a combination of neuroscience, psychology, and economic theory. Our conversation began with a discussion of how neuroeconomics critiques the traditional economic belief that people are rational decision makers before moving into the relationship between our economic system and the environment. With each interview, I am developing a greater sense of how this project is going to work and the twists and turns unstructured conversations can take. The results are always fun and surprising, and my talk with Dr. Camerer ended by returning to the mind, the biological limits of knowledge, and the new challenge of sorting through an ocean of information.
