Summary
  • Paper the incoporates the television game show, 'The Price is Right' as a laboratory for observing decision-making behavior due the high rewards that provide substantial opportunity for contestants to formulate their strategies. Evidence shows persistent decision-making errors despite penalties related to sub-optimal behavior in addition to ample opportunity for contestants to formulate strategies before-hand. Learning is evident in the data suggesting that optimal decision-making is best learned in the actual environment.
