Distilling forty years of research, Mind over Money mixes social experiment, psychological insight and interviews with real people trying to get to grips with their Money Personalities, along with simple tricks we can all use to be better with money.
The relatively new field of behavioural economics is the engine behind this show - it says that we're not the perfectly rational homo economicus of the economic textbooks. Instead we are very human and make lots of decisions that are in fact irrational.
But the good news is that our psychological 'flaws' are the same for everyone and so they actually become predictable - Mind Over Money shows the viewer how to use this information everyday in the real world.
In Mind Over Money Nigel sets out to show us all why we behave the way we do with money, and some simple tricks we can all employ to make better decision about the money we've got.
This programme is a big, visual fun, fast-paced television series that approaches these issues from left field- there's a caveman, experiments to demonstrate irrational acts of revenge, weird dates, cupcakes, inventions, coffee carts, used cars, jelly beans, fish tanks, game shows, and Nigel's undercover "Nudge Unit" a crack team who set out to "nudge" people in the right direction with their financial conundrums.
