Comedian Jeff Kreisler on Financial Literacy and Behavioral Economics
Jeff Kreisler is just a typical Princeton educated lawyer turned author, speaker, pundit, comedian and advocate for behavioral science. He uses humor & research to understand, explain and change the world.
In this interview, Jeff explains the urgent issues of financial literacy that America currently faces, and he brings in perspectives from behavioral science and economics to shine a new light on the problem. As a continuation to Mr. Pete Colhoun's interview and our efforts to promote awareness for financial literacy, this interview combines intellectual depth and humor and should be a really enjoyable episode for our listeners.
In addition to the discussion about financial literacy, as a stand-up comic himself, our host Tiger also discusses with Jeff the experience of working in the stand-up comedy world. What risks did Jeff take on when deciding to become a comedian? Is this a career he would encourage young people to do directly after college? What does it take to be a successful comedian and why has Tiger still not achieved that level yet…?
Jeff specializes in politics, money and other human encounters. Winner of the Bill Hicks Spirit Award for Thought Provoking Comedy, Jeff also runs PeopleScience.com, writes for TV, politicians & CEOs, shares witty insight on CNN, FoxNews, MSNBC & SiriusXM and tours most of this planet.
