Article of the Week 
Research examines impact of foreign language on risk perception, moral judgment
In a new article in Trends in Cognitive Sciences, scholars from the University of Chicago and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Spain examine the growing literature on how using a foreign language changes the decisions people make. The article details how research so far shows that people using a foreign language are more willing to take risks, perceive costs and benefits differently, and make less biased inferences.
