Skeptics Society Lecture at CalTech on Sunday

Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic Magazine and Paul Zak, founding director of the Center for Neuroeconomic Studies at Claremont Graduate University, will debunk two economic myths:

(1) Homo economicus: that “economic man” is rational, free and selfish and (2) that evolution and economics are based almost entirely on cutthroat competition and self-maximizing greed.In Zak’s Moral Markets and Shermer’s The Mind of the Market, the authors demonstrate that people are as irrational with money as they are in all other aspects of life…

A book signing will follow the irrational exuberance, I mean discussion.

Where, when, etc after the jump.
