Behavioral Economist Robert Frank on COVID-19 and the Mother of All Cognitive Illusions

This is a hugely entertaining video lecture from Robert Frank, an expert on behavioral economics at Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management. Frank takes us on a journey exploring social contagion, pandemics, societal well-being, and what he calls the Mother of all Cognitive Illusions. If you are wondering about the long-term impact of the pandemic on the direction of efforts to fight climate change, the future of our public health system and more, this is a must-watch.
