When you think about economics, it's money and decision making and neuroscience is just how the chemistry behind it. He is the author of The Moral Molecule and Trust Factor is his latest book. It's really the science of creating high performance companies.
Paul has spent years measuring brain activity while people worked in order to measure the factors that effect the way people interact.
