The video of Professor Cass Sunstein’s recent talk “New Directions in Behaviourally Informed Policy” at UCD is available, along with links to papers and other reading, at this link. The event was hosted jointly by the UCD College of Social Science and UCD Geary Institute for Public Policy in conjunction with the Irish Behavioural Science and Policy Network. The talk is followed by a very wide-ranging Q+A and also includes a number of observations about this area of policy in Ireland.
One reply on “Cass Sunstein – New Directions in Behaviourally Informed Policy”
Thank you for the link. Very interesting and useful material. I suspect, however, that the esteemed guest lecturer would struggle to come up with a “nudge” that would encourage households connected to the public networks to pay for water and waste water services as is the practice in most advanced economies.
