Details

Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness by Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein has been influencing policymaking since it was published in 2009. Governments in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia have set up behavioral insights teams to examine how to design “choice architecture” that can help people save for retirement, enable them to make better financial decisions, and make government more efficient. 


Richard H. Thaler, Charles R. Walgreen Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics, and a pioneer in the field of behavioral economics, joined New York Times columnist David Leonhardt for a conversation on what insights behavioral economics can bring to the political and economic challenges facing the United States today.
