Why did I do this show?
Howard is the foremost expert on behavioral economics of insurance. I mean… I still can’t get over how it took me 20 years in this business to learn his work exists. I’m embarrassed this wasn’t my first episode!
What did I learn?
Howard has a lot of ideas for ‘hacking’ our lives to overcome cognitive biases and bring about a better world.
What was my favorite part?
Our discussion of hope. Howard’s bet is that we have genuinely learned things about how humans work that can translate into action and ways to improve the world. Very hard!
