Life is a lab: Happy Money

On Monday 12 October, NHH and the research group The Choice Lab invite you to a new Life is a Lab event. Harvard professor Michael Norton will give the keynote talk "Happy Money: Are you spending your money right?"

06.10.2015 - Øyvind Torvund

Norton is a pioneer in the field of behavioral economics. At the event, he will address the question: "Are you spending your money right?", a topic he has written about in his new book Happy Money.

This is the second edition of Life is a Lab, and follows up on the success of the event organized in January 2014. The background for Life is a Lab, which we plan to organize every second year, is the prize for quality in higher education (Utdanningskvalitetsprisen) awarded by the Ministry of Education and Research to NHH and The Choice Lab researchers Alexander W. Cappelen and Bertil Tungodden in December 2013 for their bachelor course in economics and psychology.
