EmotionsThis episode explores the role that emotions play in judgment and decision making.

 

Length: 32 minutes

It is a widely held belief that the best decisions are made without the interference of emotions. Economists and statisticians alike stand fast to this belief – the best decisions are made with using pure logic. Facts and formulas lead to the most rational decisions.
