Colleague refused bet.Samuelson asked him if he would take 100 such bets. Colleague said yes.Samuelson proved mathematically that his colleague was not rational (from expected utility theory).

Most took the second bet whether or not they won the first. But most would not take second bet before outcome of first was known.Reaction of stock market to newsGambling Behavior61% of US adults gambled in 1974.1.1% of men and 0.5% of women are compulsive gamblersGamblers’ AnonymousGambling associated with self esteem and competenceGenerates an aroused state that chases away caresMagical ThinkingB.

Two boxes appear on computer screen. Subject is told that computer knows pretty well whether subject will choose box A or both box A and B. Computer puts $1000 in box A, and $1000,000 in box B if it thinks subject will choose box B alone, otherwise puts nothing in box B.
