Dear friends of the L.L. Bean/Lee Surace Colloquium Series:
On October 28th, from 4:45-5:30 pm on the 7th floor of USM-Portland's Glickman Library, Professor Caroline Noblet will discuss, "Economics, psychology and living sustainably - Oh my!"¬†Professor Noblet will explain the different motivating roles of economics and psychology in affecting environmentally responsible choices.¬†Complimentary refreshments provided
by L.L. Bean will follow. Free and open to the public, we ask only that you¬†register here.¬†
Getting people to make purposeful decisions is not an easy task for policy makers. Caroline will show us that it is not all about economic decision making. Even if public coffers were loaded with cash (we know they aren't), it apparently is not all¬†about dollars and cents. Undeniably, economics play a critical role. But her research, along with others' that she'll discuss, tells a different, more complete, story.¬†
Join us on Monday, October 28th, at¬†4:45 pm when Professor Caroline Noblet explains the role of human psychology, along with economics, in making decisions about living sustainably.¬†
See you there!
L.L. Bean/Lee Surace Endowed Chair and Professor of Accounting
