Perilaku Ekonomi Manusia dan Monyet

Baru aja nih saya nemu video presentasi yang menarik dari Dr. Laurie Santos (peneliti dari Comparative Cognition Laboratory (CapLab) di Yale University.

Cukup worth it buat ditonton dan diambil kesimpulan tentang bagaimana kita sebagai manusia yang  pintar dan sekaligus seringkali membuat kesalahan ekonomi yang dapat diprediksi dan membuat kesalahan tersebut berulang-ulang.

Isi presentasi yg dia bawain adalah tentang perilaku ekonomi manusia dan riset yang dia lakuin dengan sejumlah monyet laboratorium dia yg diajarkan bagaimana menggunakan token sebagai mata uang/currency untuk ditukar dengan makanan.

Selanjutnya monyet-monyet lab tersebut diteliti bila diberikan pilihan ekonomi sederhana yang seringkali juga dilakukan oleh manusia.

Camera Obscura – French Navy Video dan Lirik

Spent a week in a dusty library
Waiting for some words to jump at me
We met by a trick of fate
French navy, my sailor mate

We met by the moon on a silvery lake
You came my way
Said, “I want you to stay.”

You and your dietary restriction
Said you loved me with a lot of conviction
I was waiting to be struck by lightning
Waiting for somebody exciting

Like you
Oh, the thing that you do
You make me go, “Oooh”
With the things that you do, you do, you do

I wanted to control it
But love, I couldn’t hold it
I wanted to control it
But love, I couldn’t hold it

I’ll be criticized for lending out my art
I was criticized for letting you break my heart
Why would I stand for disappointed looks
Fooling all but I’m on tender hooks, ooh with the looks
On tender hooks,
Ooh, with the looks, the looks, the looks

I wanted to control it
But love, I couldn’t hold it
I wanted to control it
But love, I couldn’t hold it

Relationships were something I used to do
Convince me they are better for me and you
We met by a trick of fate
French navy, my sailor-

I wanted to control it
But love, I couldn’t hold it
I wanted to control it
But love, I couldn’t hold it
