Auditorium Speaker - Dan Ariely Author Event, Speaker series Anaheim Convention Center
Ballroom DE
Description :

Behavioral economist and bestselling author Dan Ariely takes a groundbreaking look at the way we behave, examining the contradictory forces that drive us to cheat and keep us honest, in his forthcoming book “The Honest Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone—Especially Ourselves.”

When we make decisions we think we're in control. But are we? From ticket-fixing in our police departments to test-score scandals in our schools, from our elected leaders’ extra-marital affairs to the Ponzi schemes undermining our economy, cheating and dishonesty are ubiquitous parts of our national news cycle—and inescapable parts of the human condition. Drawing on original experiments and research, in the vein of Freakonomics, The Tipping Point, and Survival of the Sickest, Ariely reveals—honestly—what motivates these irrational, but entirely human, behaviors.

Ariely is the New York Times bestselling author of “Predictably Irrational” and “The Upside of Irrationality” which he says “are my attempt to take my research findings and describe them in non academic terms so that more people will learn about this type of research, discover the excitement of behavioral economics, and possibly use some of the insights to enrich their own lives.” He is the James B. Duke Professor of Behavioral Economics at Duke University, with appointments at the Fuqua School of Business, the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, and the Department of Economics. He has also held a visiting professorship at MIT’s Media Lab. He has appeared on CNN and CNBC, and is a regular commentator on National Public Radio’s Marketplace. More about Dan Ariely

Scrabylon is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed documentary on the cutthroat world of tournament SCRABBLE®.

Shot primarily during the World SCRABBLE® Championships in Las Vegas, Scrabylon features players from around the globe and gives an up-close look at why people get so obsessed with that seemingly benign game played at countless kitchen tables. The glue between all these players is John D. Williams, Jr., the Executive Director of the National SCRABBLE® Association, who describes in great detail the quirks, strategies and personalities of this fascinating group of individuals.
