Nobel Economist Robert Shiller Talk on Consumer deception and manipulation! Prof. Shiller will speak on his recent book, co-authored with George Akerlof (MIT PhD '66 and 2001 Nobel Laureate), "Phishing for Phools: The Economics of Manipulation and Deception." His thesis is that as long as there is profit to be made, sellers will systematically exploit consumers' psychological weaknesses and ignorance through manipulation and deception. Markets are thus inherently filled with tricks and traps, and they can harm as well as help us.
