Abstract
APS Fellow Daniel Kahneman received a Nobel Prize in Economics in 2002 for his groundbreaking work in integrating psychological research and economics. Kahneman's research, with the late Amos Tversky, laid the foundation for a new field of behavioral economics by discovering how human judgment may take shortcuts that systematically depart from basic principles of probability and standard economic theories.

Daniel Kahneman will be introduced by APS President John T. Cacioppo, and interviewed by Richard H. Thaler, the Ralph and Dorothy Keller Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. Kahneman and Thaler have collaborated on several research projects and journal articles.
