335

This week on Standard Deviations, Dr. Daniel Crosby offers a sneak preview of an essay from his upcoming book, The Soul of Wealth.

Educated at Brigham Young and Emory Universities, Dr. Daniel Crosby is a psychologist and behavioral finance expert who helps organizations understand the intersection of mind and markets. Dr. Crosby’s first book, Personal Benchmark: Integrating Behavioral Finance and Investment Management, was a New York Times bestseller. His second book, The Laws of Wealth, was named the best investment book of 2017 by the Axiom Business Book Awards and has been translated into Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and German.

His latest work, The Behavioral Investor, is an in-depth look at how sociology, psychology and neurology all impact investment decision-making. Daniel was named one of the “12 Thinkers to Watch” by Monster.com, a “Financial Blogger You Should Be Reading” by AARP and a member of InvestmentNews prestigious “40 Under 40”. When he is not consulting around market psychology, Daniel enjoys independent films, fanatically following St. Louis Cardinals baseball, and spending time with his wife and three children.

Tune in to hear:
  • What common ground, if any, can be found across nearly all spiritual and religious traditions on the globe?
  • What does academic research have to say about the benefits that accrue to those who are generous?
  • Why doesn’t spending money on ourselves bring about long-lasting joy and what role does the “hedonic treadmill” play in this?
  • Why do the benefits of giving transcend economic and cultural boundaries?
  • It is clear that generosity makes us happier, but can it also make us richer?
