Sometimes making choices that ultimately serve us in the long run may not seem obvious or easy or possible. Take a listen to Dr. Elke Weber and give change a chance.
Elke U. Weber is the Jerome A. Chazen Professor of International Business as well as Earth Institute Professor at Columbia University. Elke received her B.A. degree in psychology (summa cum laude) from York University in Canada and her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard in Behavior and Decision Analysis. Her research examines human decision-making under risk and uncertainty, specifically in financial and environmental contexts. At Columbia, she founded and co-directs the Center for Decision Sciences (CDS), which generates and facilitates interdisciplinary decision research relevant to the needs of real world decision makers, and the Center for Research on Environmental Decisions (CRED), which investigates ways of facilitating human adaptation to climate change and climate variability.
