"Think Better" with Richard Thaler
In the decade since "Nudge" was first published, the book has become hugely influential, bringing behavioral economics to the masses and reshaping the policy landscape through the use of behavioral insights.

In this conversation with CDR Faculty Director Nicholas Epley, Nobel Laureate Richard Thaler will discuss the new edition of "Nudge," rewritten cover to cover with co-author Cass Sunstein. "Nudge: The Final Edition" revisits the foundational principles of choice architecture using field-tested case studies, and expands into new territory with concepts like "sludge".

Speakers

Richard H. Thaler
Charles R. Walgreen Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics @University of Chicago Booth School of Business
Richard H. Thaler is the Charles R. Walgreen Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and a member of the CDR governing board. He is the 2017 recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his contributions to behavioral economics. Thaler studies behavioral economics and finance as well as the psychology of decision-making which lies in the gap between economics and psychology. He investigates the implications of relaxing the standard economic assumption that everyone in the economy is rational and selfish, instead entertaining the possibility that some of the agents in the economy are sometimes human.
