Conference Keynote by Dr. Scott Niederjohn, Lakeland University

In a rational world that economic theory is based upon people should respond predictably to issues of scarcity to maximize their benefit.   Dr. Scott Niederjohn  draws on economic theory and cognitive psychology, exploring how human beings react in ways that are not always as rational as economics model predict.  Learn about the “cognitive short-cuts” human beings take that may undermine rational decision-making in some circumstances. Understanding this human element may lead to different ways to communicate costs and benefits to any audience from students in your class to marketing a product or program to your community.
