Behavioural Economics Twitter highlights 28 Apr - 4 May 2012

Sat 28 Apr - Fri 4 May 2012

Posted weekly by @peoplepatterns, this post contains a summary of tweets noted in the past week that mentioned behavioural/behavioral economics. Where possible, re-tweets and tweets without links been removed to condense the list.

I haven't seen a week as active as this one all year!  The standout was Business Week's piece "Why Everyone Wants a Piece of Facebook's IPO: Insights From Behavioral Economics" Interestingly it seemed to get more much more Twitter action in the US than elsewhere - perhaps the Facebook IPO is bigger news there?
