AUTHORS: Ackert/Deaves - ©2010
Discover a structured, applied approach to behavioral finance with the first academic text of its kind--Ackert/Deaves’ BEHAVIORAL FINANCE: PSYCHOLOGY, DECISION MAKING, AND MARKETS. This comprehensive text links finance theory and practice to human behavior. The book begins by building upon the established, conventional principles of finance that you’ve have already learned in your principles course. The authors then move into psychological principles of behavioral finance, including heuristics and biases, overconfidence, emotion and social forces. You immediately see how human behavior influences the decisions of individual investors and professional finance practitioners, managers, and markets. You also gain a strong understanding of how social forces impact individuals’ choices. The book clearly explains what behavioral finance indicates about observed market outcomes as well as how psychological biases potentially impact the behavior of managers. The book’s solid academic approach provides opportunities for you to utilize theory and complete applications in every chapter as you learn the implications of behavioral finance on retirement, pensions, education, debiasing, and client management. The book spends a significant amount of time examining how today’s practitioners can use behavioral finance to further their professional success.
