Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as online seminars or as online and in person. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, current restrictions mean in-person seminars are only open to members of the LSE community (those with a valid LSE ID card).

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom.


About this event

Why does poverty persist? Why do the busy feel perpetually behind? Why do diets fail? The scarcity mind set connects these diverse behaviours. Sendhil Mullainathan is a Professor of Economics at Harvard whose main interest is behavioural economics. This talk is part of the STICERD Morishima Lecture series and it is free and open to the public. No reservations are required.
