Check out most of behavioral economics. (I recommend Dan Gilbert on Ted, not linked to avoid trivial chances to waste time)

Yeah, I don't watch TED anymore. Any other specific suggestions?

I can't give another suggestion unless you tell me what's undesirable about watching TED. There's a transcript on the site, but he uses graphics copiously, so I'm curious how useful it is. Less Wrong says it is too long to post as a comment.

I don't like watching videos of lectures. I thought perhaps you had more references on behavioral economics; if you don't, no big deal.
