(Please note: the public lecture will be held in German)
If you were offered one hundred euro today - or promised 101 tomorrow, how would you chose? And why is it important to know this? It is connected to one's perspective on balancing the present and the future - which relates back to success in life. A number of scientific studies show that patience and perseverance - waiting for the 101 euro - are tightly connected to long lasting achievement. Matthias Sutter, one of Germany's leading behavioral economists, presents in his public lecture the apparently old fashioned virtue of patience, in a fun and entertaining way.
