I am working on a new project, and I wanted to know what your favorite blogs or resources are for Behavioral Economics, Neuro-Science, and the Psychology of investing.


Post a comment, or email me at TheBigPicture at Optonline dot net

Category: Psychology, Weblogs

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Best Practices for Equity Research Analysts (McGraw-Hill) has a chapter on the topic (Chapter 21: Avoid Common Psychological Challenges That Impede Sound Investing). When I was writing the book, I searched a number of publications above as well as academic journals and these resources below:
    * 50 Psychological Experiments for Investors by Mickael Mangot
    * Behavioral Finance and Market Anomalies: An Academic Review by Michael Schoenhart
    * Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by Charles MacKay
    * The Little Book of Behavioral Investing: How not to be your own worst enemy

    At one point I had a list of over 50 psychological “pitfalls” (biases) that were mentioned by various authors. I distilled them down to 15 of the most common which are summarized in exhibit 21.2). What I also discovered is that most of the “new” trends mentioned in the media are actually issues that have been around for decades (or even centuries).

    Take a look at the CFA Institute’s Behavioral Finance Blog (http://blogs.cfainstitute.org/investor/category/investment-topics/behavioral-finance/)

    I receive regular behavioural investment research from Yves Lamoureux which is probably one of the best around.

    Nudges.org is pretty good. You’ve already listed most of the better ones. There is a law and neuroscience blog run by Vanderbilt that could be good, but not a lot of content yet, I think it’s fairly new.
    Dr. Joe Dispenza has written two excellent books on neuro plasticity and changing behavior.

    This is simple but works quite well. Use a personalised version of Google news, electing your own topic “Behavioural economics” “Neuroeconomics”etc.. that works well for me.

    Maybe you could bribe Karl Smith. Not explicitly behavioral but always deeply perceptive.
