'Human Behaviour under Distress: The Sinking of the Titanic'
Joint STICERD-LSE Health special lecture
Date: 1 May 2009
Speaker: Professor Bruno Frey, University of Zurich
Abstract: "The sinking of the Titanic in April 1912 took the lives of 68 percent of the people aboard. Who survived? It was women and children who had a higher probability of being saved, not men. Likewise, people travelling in first class had a better chance of survival than those in second and third class. British passengers were more likely to perish than members of other nations. This extreme event represents a rare case of a well-documented life and death situation where social norms were enforced. This paper shows that economic analysis can account for human behaviour in such situations.
