Abstract: The field of behavioral finance tries to make sense of the behavior of investors, markets, and firms using frameworks that are psychologically more realistic than their predecessors. This talk offers an introduction to the field, covering some of the most important concepts -- extrapolation, overconfidence, and prospect theory - as well as applications to understanding asset prices, portfolio choice, and corporate finance.
