   2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR  
   

BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR:  THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SEPARATING YOU FROM YOUR MONEY

Saturday, February 8 at 2 p.m.

Charles Zanor, a psychologist and Suffield resident, will present a program on behavioral economics, discussing things like brand loyalty, going to the casino and shopping for sales.  He recently wrote a piece on the subject for Scientific American. When we think of "economic theory”, we mostly think big - supply and demand, inflation and recession, national debt and taxes.  But what does all that have to do with how we make financial decisions in our day-to-day lives?  In some cases, not much. Often, how we spend or refrain from spending our money is more a matter of "behavioral economics."  How much are we willing to spend on concert tickets, for example?  If we buy them, would we be later willing to sell them at a higher price?  What happens if circumstances make it hard for us to actually go to the concert
