Video: Investing and Loss Aversion

I’m a big fan of Wendover Productions and their YouTube explainer videos. Recently, they released a new video called “The Magic Economics of Gambling“. While the title is more grabbing than using the term “loss aversion”, the video helps explain why people prefer avoiding losses to acquiring an equal level of gains. This is a major psychological component of investing and overall risk tolerance.
