Taking the Self Out of Self-Control

Self-control is often reduced to individual willpower, when in reality, it can be influenced by the choices one is given. Professors Shoda and Laibson will examine how modifying situational features surrounding one’s choices can lead to changes in behavior, and how we can engineer those changes to benefit ourselves and society. 

Wednesday, May 9 | 7:30 - 9:30 PM
