Thaler has more slides thanking collaborators/friends than the Prize lecture…

Though it has been nearly a month since Prof Thaler gave the 2017 Prize lecture. I just revisited the lecture slides which are so unlike any lecture in economics one can ever get.

But then what was more interesting was Prof Thaler putting a slideshow of collaborators/friends on the website. It has about 50 slides whereas his Prize lecture is about 43 slides.

I have seen this for the first time and is a great gesture by Prof Thaler. It is in a way tribute to his own philosophy where he shows humans are overconfident while assessing themselves. He shows his award is due to support/discussions with several friends and collaborators.
