Brigitte Madrian: Saving for the Future--Behavioral Economics Helps Make It Happen
Everyone knows that they should save money for retirement and other future needs, but few people do.  Why are we so bad at doing what we know is the best, most rational way to use our money?  The field of behavioral economics gives us some beginning answers to that question, and guest Brigitte Madrian will discuss today how she has used this economic theory to help design pension plans that help people to save.—Original airdate: 11/2/2016
