Dan Ariely

One of the world’s foremost behavioural economists, Dan’s TED talks have been watched nearly 8 million times and Kilkenomics is delighted to welcome him back to Kilkenny. Following the painful treatment he received for injuries sustained in an explosion, Dan became engrossed with the idea that we repeatedly and predictably make the wrong decisions in many aspects of our lives. His books: Irrationally Yours, Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality and The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty have made our understanding of behavioural economics accessible and beneficial and his legendary talks are intriguing, revealing and often very funny.
Dan has a new book coming out in November 2016 called ‘Payoff: The Hidden Logic That Shapes Our Motivations’.
