Erin A. Yetter, lecturer in economics in the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona, was referenced in an October 12 Yahoo Life article on the stock market and whether or not trading stocks with others is valuable to investors.

The article compares investors trading stocks to children trading Halloween candy, explaining how using strategic decision-making to benefit oneself is the motive behind making any deal.

“Econ is everywhere,” the article states, citing Yetter. “It’s about making decisions, any kind of decisions. And those choices are made against a backdrop of scarcity, be it time, money or resources, with everyone trying to answer a fundamental question of, ‘Is this worth it to me?’”
