Loss Aversion and the Optimism Bias


Let's get together to watch and discuss two great TED talks over dinner and drinks!

Tali Sharot, author of The Optimism Bias: A Tour of the Irrationally Positive Brain shares why we believe the future will be better than the past or present.  Laurie Santos sheds light on the origins of loss aversion by setting up a monkey economy.  This should fuel a great discussion so I hope you can join us.

We will start gathering at 6:30 to get our food and drink orders in before we start the first video at 7:00.  If you would like to preview the videos, you can find them here:
