The Psychology of Money – Professor Glenn D Wilson

The Psychology of Money – Professor Glenn D Wilson



It has been claimed that economics is just a branch of psychology. Certainly movements on the stock market reflect human greed and fears. The desire to acquire wealth is a major driving force in human behaviour and our relationship with money says much about who we are. If money doesn’t necessarily make us happy it does powerfully affect our emotions and is a factor in many psychological disorders ranging from anxiety and depression to hoarding and kleptomania.

  • Very enlightening. I watched this several time, each time trying to catch myself doing some of his example. This will definitely help me make better decision.

  • Brilliant presentation with splendid explanations. I learnt some very important things. Thank you!

  • money is a form of reward and punishment which is a tool for authority which is domination

  • No comment just listening…

  • If he is not qualified to admit that inflation is bad why is he even on the stage and how can you call this educational. Debasing the currency by adding to it through quantitative easing or money printing is only good for the people who get it first. so if you are like me you get it last when it is basically worthless. In the United States the dollar is worth about 3 cents of its original value. that is what you call theft and fraud. Look up the Federal Reserve and think for yourself.

  • thanks Glenn.

  • Thanks my friend.

  • Money talks, but it only says what you want it to say. Your relationship with money will determine your money's relationship with you.
