Now you can offer your students a structured, applied approach to behavioral finance with the first academic text of its kind--Ackert/Deaves' BEHAVIORAL FINANCE: PSYCHOLOGY, DECISION MAKING, AND MARKETS. This comprehensive text--ideal for your behavioral finance elective-- links finance theory and practice to human behavior. The book begins by building upon the established, conventional principles of finance that students have already learned in their principles course. The authors then move into psychological principles of behavioral finance, including heuristics and biases, overconfidence, emotion and social forces. Students learn how human behavior influences the decisions of individual investors and professional finance practitioners, managers, and markets. Your students gain a strong understanding of how social forces impact people's choices. The book clearly explains what behavioral finance indicates about observed market outcomes as well as how psychological biases potentially impact the behavior of managers. Students learn the implications of behavioral finance on retirement, pensions, education, debiasing, and client management. This book is unique as it spends a significant amount of time examining how behavioral finance can be used effectively by practitioners today. The book's solid academic approach provides opportunities for students to utilize theory and complete applications in every chapter. A wide variety of end-of-chapter exercises, discussion questions, simulations and experiments reinforce the book's applied approach, while useful instructor supplements ensure you have the resources to clearly present theories of behavioral finance and their applications.
