Part of micro-economics involves financial decision making at an individual level. Understanding "why" we do what we do, when it comes to decision making, will form an important foundation to making financial decisions. Cognitive Bias is a systematic error in thinking that occurs when people are processing and interpreting information in the world around them and affects the decisions and judgements they make. These two documents allow students and teachers to work through cases and situations where various types of cognitive bias exists and how it may impact decision making.

Ask the students to reflect on how much money they have left. Did they “spend” all their money or end up with lots of money.

Rating

Marginal Cost/Benefit Decisions and the Investment Industry Watch video: DRUG SHORT ON NETFLIX in the Dirty Money Series (Series 1)This activity is meant to be used once Marginal Cost, Marginal Benefit and Diminishing Marginal Utility and Investing (short selling) are taught. The movie "Drug Short" is part of the Dirty Money Series 1 on Netflix. Underlying issues in this case are greed, ethics, corporate profit and efforts to maximize shareholder profit at all costs (even human life). This activity looks at the activites of pharmaceutical companies and their efforts to make money, yet disregarding the impact on people who rely on the medicine. Short seller investors "sold the stocks" of drug companies when the prices were high, predicting that there was unethical activities which would eventually bring the share price down. Short sellers make money by expecting share prices to fall, when they identify bad companies or unethical behavior (which is exactly what happened here).
