DANIEL KAHNEMAN is a Senior Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He is also Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs Emeritus at the Woodrow Wilson School, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology Emeritus at Princeton University, and a fellow of the Center for Rationality at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Kahneman is mainly known for his pioneering work on the interface of psychology and economics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in 2002.

The homo economicus does not exist any longer.
