Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman
and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly
original studies undoing our assumptions about the
decision-making process. Their papers showed the
ways in which the human mind erred, systematically,
when forced to make judgments in uncertain situations.
Their work created the field of behavioral economics,
revolutionized Big Data studies, advanced evidence-
based medicine, led to a new approach to government
regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis’s own
work possible. Kahneman and Tversky are more
responsible than anybody for the powerful trend to
mistrust human intuition and defer to algorithms.
