If you've ever made a financial decision you regretted the next day, you're not alone. In fact, as the emerging field of behavioral economics reveals, you're practically hard-wired to overspend, an activity that lights up the brain's pleasure centers.
"Thinking Money: The Psychology Behind Our Best and Worst Financial Decisions" is a new FINRA Foundation documentary that uses a mix of humor, on-the-street interviews and provocative insights from innovative thinkers to explore why we spend, why we save (or don't) and how we think about money.
Premieres Wednesday, October 1 on Maryland Public Television. For viewers in the DC metropolitan area, use this channel guide to locate MPT on your cable or satellite provider. Releasing October 16 by American Public Television to public television stations nationwide.
