Program Description

Some societies believe that fate, not free will, determines the course of our futures. Many people rely on astrology and numerology to help them make important decisions. How much of our lives is choice? How much is chance? How much is destiny? Sheena Iyengar is a social scientist specializing in the study of how people make choices. Her book, The Art of Choosing, explains how cultural background can influence the way we decide. In this candid conversation with María Hinojosa, she talks about growing up Sikh, how people from different backgrounds arrive at decisions, and how we can learn to become more effective choosers.
