IN DEPTH - An in-depth analysis by HEC professors
ARTICLES - Professors' analysis and research
INSTANTS - Points of view
When a crisis hits, as we are experiencing now with Covid-19, the economy goes into a tailspin, demand drops and firm profits plummet. Yet, not all industries and firms are affected in the same way. It is fairly straightforward to understand why the crisis-produced drop in demand will be much larger in some sectors of the economy than in others: if people are confined at home, air travel will drop to almost nothing, but video game sales may soar as a bored population seeks entertainment they can enjoy despite the lockdown.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, the reaction of populations and the response of governments in various countries raise many questions.
Cognitive science can help us understand the biases that affect these reactions, and the apparent irrationality of some of them. In this interactive session, Professor Olivier Sibony will use examples drawn from the response to the pandemic in various countries to illustrate several cognitive biases.
The discussion will highlight the dangers that the same cognitive biases present for executives in their strategic decisions, and the lessons they can draw to avoid them.
Speaker: Olivier Sibony, Associate Professor HEC Paris
