SBSRC Faculty Writing Group

The SBSRC Writing Group meets from 2-4pm on Mondays, which is open to social and behavioral scientists interested in working on writing. It is a group of social and behavioral science faculty and researchers who, following advice in the book “How to Write a Lot,” meet regularly to set and achieve writing goals, and to share support, challenges, and tips. If you cannot make it the whole time, or if you can only make it some weeks and not others, you are still welcome. It is best if you can make it from 215-245, as that is when the group members will share their goals, achievements, and rewards. If interested, contact Lisa at for more information.

Monday, October 10, 2016 - 12:30pm to 1:30pmCABIN Brown Bag:Mike Norton: Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending

CABIN will feature a guest speaker from the Harvard Business School who has been invited to campus as part of a social neuroscience group that a few of our faculty are a part of.  Michael Norton will be giving a talk entitled (abstract below):

 Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending

Can money buy happiness? HBS Professor Michael Norton certainly thinks so - if you follow five core principles of smarter spending. Michael is the co-author, with Elizabeth Dunn, of Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending. The book provides five research-based principles designed to help people use their money in happier ways - whether they have a little or a lot of it. The book is full of recent research and examples that range from how individuals gain happiness by choosing "experiences over stuff" to how companies seek to create happier employees or 'happier products' for their customers. Along the way, you'll learn why you should be giving more money to charity, and why commercials make TV better, and why you’d be just as happy driving a Ford escort as a BMW.
