Traditional thinking about personal decision making assumed people would act rationally in their best interests, but we know from experience that many people make choices that seem harmful to their interests -- smoking cigarettes, eating high-calorie foods, failing to write an advance directive, etc. Professor Loewenstein is a leading expert on how people make health decisions and how policy can encourage better decisions.

George Loewenstein, PhD, is a Herbert A. Simon Professor of Economics and Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University.
