Princeton University, where Kahneman worked until his death, released a statement honoring him. Colleagues praised his work, saying it reshaped social sciences. Professor Eldar Shafir said, “We deeply feel his absence, but his legacy lives on.”

Kahneman’s biggest achievement was winning the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 2002. This prize recognized his research that combined psychology and economics. His book, “Thinking, Fast and Slow,” challenged traditional economic theories, suggesting human behavior isn’t purely rational but influenced by mental biases and instincts.

His ideas were influential, even mentioned in reports like “Can Money Buy Happiness?” – a question that fascinates many.

While the Nobel Memorial Prize wasn’t originally part of Alfred Nobel’s will, Sweden’s central bank established it in 1968 to mark its 300th anniversary.

Though Kahneman is no longer with us, his impact on behavioral economics and our understanding of human decision-making will last for generations.
