Abstract: One of the two laureates of the Nobel Prize for economics in 2002 is Daniel Kahneman. After taking a brief look at Kahneman's life, the present article surveys his contributions to our understanding of three aspects of human decision making: judgment, comparison of alternatives and types of utility. In all three areas, interesting economic applications of Kahneman's results are possible. Some of these applications are sketched.
