To date, more than 200 governments worldwide use elements of so called “behaviorally based regulation” or “nudging”. In the past years, nudges have been increasingly and successfully applied by governments, international organizations and businesses to promote more sustainable markets. In this seminar one of the founders of the concept, top regulator and consultant to President Obama, shares his insider knowledge on how environmental policy and sustainable development can be supported by using this new instrument of liberty preserving nudges.
Prof Cass R Sunstein is the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard and Harvard Law School where he founded and directs the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy. He is a prolific writer, an advisor to the US president and consultant to governments and companies worldwide. Sunstein argues for "nudges" in the form of low-cost, choice-preserving approaches, and also for careful analysis of the costs and benefits of regulations. His latest book is "The ethics of influence".
