042 │ Impulsivity and Behavioral Economics: An Interview with Dr. Len Green │ Why We Do What We Do
What to Expect
In this episode, Abraham and RYANO talk with Dr. Len Green about impulsive behavior and get into an easy-to-understand discussion about behavioral economics!
Len Green received his undergraduate degree from the City College of New York (CCNY) and his PhD from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. After completing post-doctoral research, he ventured west of the Mississippi (despite thinking he still was east of the river) where he is Professor of Psychology and Professor of Economics at Washington University in St. Louis, as well as Director of Undergraduate Studies. His research concerns choice and decision-making in rats, pigeons, and people, with a particular interest in models of self-control, impulsivity, and choice and decision-making. He is one of the developers of ‘behavioral economics,’ a transdisciplinary field that combines the experimental methodology of psychology with the theoretical constructs of economics. He is co-author of the book Economic Choice Theory: An Experimental Analysis of Animal Behavior, and editor of Advances in Behavioral Economics, the third volume of which is subtitled Substance Use and Abuse. His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Aging, and the McDonnell Center for Higher Brain Function. He served on the Executive Board of the Society for the Quantitative Analysis of Behavior (SQAB), was President of the Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (SEAB), and was Editor of the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior. He is a Fellow of the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) and the Association for Psychological Science (APS), and is Past-President of Division 25 (Behavior Analysis) of the American Psychological Association.
