14 November | Scientia Fellow Associate Professor Elise Payzan-Le Nestour | Preventing financial crises with neuroeconomics?


It’s been 10 years since the collapse of Lehman Brothers, triggering a Global Financial Crisis that would destabilise even the most advanced economies. With the impacts of the GFC still felt today, understanding the root causes of economic behaviour, and excessive risk taking in particular, is critical.

In the next Learn@Lunch presentation, UNSW Scientia Fellow and Associate Professor Elise Payzan-LeNestour will explain how the latest research in neuroeconomics can help us to grasp these root causes. She will also unpack how these insights may ultimately be used by policymakers to protect financial agents against excessive risk-taking.
