Daniel Kahneman is winner of the Nobel Prize in economics for his integration of economic science with the psychology of human behavior, judgment and decision-making. He is the author of the popular book “Thinking, Fast and Slow” that summarizes in an accessible way his research of several decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky, on cognitive biases, prospect theory, and happiness.

The book delineates cognitive biases associated with each type of thinking.

Britain’s constitutional dilemma: who now runs the country? The Briefing Room Does Britain’s constitution need an overhaul - and is it time to have a written constitution?

The Prime Minister responded that he "strongly disagrees" with the ruling but will "respect" it.
So is British democracy at a crossroads? In an extended edition of the Briefing Room, David Aaronovitch asks who is running Britain and is it now time to have a written constitution.
