What is the difference between cognitive economics and behavioural finance?

A simpler way to explain it is by analogy with the difference between engineering and physics. Behavioural finance is like engineering - engineers know some rules about how objects behave, and they can use those rules to design and test new implementations of existing inventions, and fix things that have already been built. Cognitive economics is like physics - physicists know the underlying theory of how things work, and they can use that to explain how existing inventions operate, and to work out how to create wholly new ones.

FuturistSpeaker.com – A Study of Future Trends and Predictions by Futurist Thomas Frey » Blog Archive » 12 Emerging Trends that Everyone Missed at CES | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it

Every year that I attend CES in Las Vegas I reach a point of sensory overload. It’s not just from all the people, lights, noise, and smells, but an overload of product strategies and emerging trends for the coming year.
With everything from R2D2 showing up outside the convention center, to meeting celebrities on the showroom floor, or coming face-to-face with a Paul Bunyan-sized electronic game-playing running shoe by Sketchers, or walking into a booth full of the coolest Chinese technologies ever made but not being able to talk to anyone because they don’t speak English, it’s not possible to describe all the sensations a person will experience at an event like this.
Everyone will experience CES in their own unique way, and the impressions they walk away with will help define their understanding of the world to come. Big time decisions are being made by the impressions made here.
