Nobel Prize Winner Daniel Kahneman, Israeli-American Psychologist, Passes Away in the USA

In 2002, Israeli-American psychologist Daniel Kahneman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for his innovative application of psychological methods to the field of economics. Born in Tel Aviv in 1934 and educated with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and psychology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Kahneman later worked as a psychologist in the Israeli Defense Forces before pursuing his PhD in psychology at the University of California, Berkeley.

As one of the pioneers of behavioral economics, Kahneman’s work had a profound impact on the field by applying psychological principles to economic decision-making. His groundbreaking studies on judgment and decision-making under uncertainty earned him this prestigious award, making him the first psychologist to receive it. Despite conducting his research as a psychologist rather than an economist, Kahneman’s work significantly influenced the field of economics.

Kahneman passed away on March 27 at the age of 90 in the United States. His death was confirmed by his stepdaughter Deborah Treisman, an editor at The New Yorker.
