Nudge Summary : NO.1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER From Cass R. Sunstein and Richard H. Thaler, winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Economics, Nudge is the book that changed the way we think about decision-making. Nudge is about choices - how we make them and how we can make better ones. Every day we make decisions: about the things that we buy or the meals we eat; about the investments we make or our children's health and education; even the causes that we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. We are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. And, as Thaler and Sunstein show, no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way. By knowing how people think, we can make it easier for them to choose what is best for them, their families and society. Using dozens of eye-opening examples and original research, the authors demonstrate how to nudge us in the right directions, without restricting our freedom of choice. 'How often do you read a book that is both important and amusing, both practical and deep? ... A must-read for anyonewho wants to see both our minds and our society working better' Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow 'I love this book. It is one of the few books I've read recently that fundamentally changes the way I think about the world' Steven D. Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics

Nudge Nudge Think Think Summary : How can governments persuade citizens to act in socially beneficial ways? This successor to Thaler and Sunstein's cult book Nudge argues that an alternative approach needs to be considered - a 'think' strategy, in which citizens deliberate their own priorities as part of a process of civic renewal.

Nudge and the Law Summary : Behavioural sciences help refine our understanding of human decision-making. Their insights are immensely relevant for policy-making since public intervention works much better when it targets real people rather than imaginary beings assumed to be perfectly rational. Increasingly, governments around the world are keen to rely on those insights for reshaping public interventions in a wide range of policy areas such as energy, health, financial services and data protection. When policy-making meets behavioural sciences, effective and low-cost regulations can emerge in the form of default rules, smart disclosure and simplification requirements. While behaviourally-informed intervention has a huge potential for policymaking, it also attracts legitimacy and practicability concerns. Nudge and the Law takes a European perspective on those issues and explores the legal implications of the emergent phenomenon of behavioural regulation by focusing on the challenges and opportunities it may offer to EU policy-making and beyond.

N r r nudges acceptabla Summary : Interventions aimed to change behavior (so called nudges) are becoming more and more popular among policymakers. However, in order to be able to effectively use nudges, it is important to understand when and why people find them acceptable. The objective of this thesis is therefore to improve the understanding of when nudges are judged to be acceptable. The thesis focuses on a model for behavioral change. The model contains two parts, nudge technique and acceptance of nudges. Nudge technique refers to how the nudge is designed to function in regard to psychological mechanism and functionality. The nudge technique part of the model is expanded and problematized from an ethical perspective in the first part of this thesis, by exemplifying psychological mechanisms behind different techniques and explaining why they might be intrusive to individuals’ freedom of choice. In the second part of this thesis it is discussed why acceptance is an important component of making nudging legitimate and effective. This is followed by a discussion of how acceptance is empirically measured. The empirical part of the thesis is based on four papers which all use a quantitative online survey approach to study the judgements of nudges from the general public. Paper 1 was a first attempt to measure whether nudges which are common in the nudge literature are acceptable interventions according to the general public. We found that the nudges that were categorized as pro-self were more likely to be rated as acceptable and less likely to be perceived as intrusive to freedom of choice compared to pro-social nudges. Furthermore, the effect of decision styles and worldview on acceptance was explored. In paper 2, we explored whether the difference between acceptance found for pro-social nudges and proself nudges could be increased by framing nudges as beneficial for society or individuals. The framing had no effect on acceptance but, as in paper 1, pro-social nudges were found to be more intrusive to freedom of choice compared to pro-self framed nudges. Moreover, different nudge techniques had different rates of acceptance even with the same explicit goal for the nudges. In paper 3, we examined whether the alternative to nudges affects the perceived acceptability and intrusiveness of default-changing nudge techniques. The alternatives given to the nudges were either to enforce the intended behavioral change with legislation or to do nothing at all in order to change the behavior. We find no difference in aggregated acceptance, however, the judgements vary depending on individuals’ worldview. Paper 4 explored if the choice architect’s (the creator/proposer of the nudge) political affiliation affects acceptance rating for proposed nudge interventions and legislation. We find that acceptance of both nudges and legislation increases with the level of matching between people’s political orientation and the choice architect’s political affiliation. Taken together, the findings suggest that there is more to creating an acceptable nudge than to merely take a nudge technique that was acceptable in one context and apply it in another. Moreover, nudges that are rated as more beneficial towards individuals compared to society at large are in general more likely to be found acceptable and less intrusive to freedom of choice. It is important to have knowledge about the target population (e.g. their decision styles, world-views, and political orientation) to avoid backfires when implementing nudges.

Nudge Your Health Summary : Imagine you live in a community of people where there are no doctors, pharmacists or dentists, because no one needed one. It happened less than a century ago, in multiple places on the planet, and this book provides you with simple steps to help recreate it. The primary concept of this book: If a diet consistently results in jaw deformities, irregular position of teeth, tooth decay or gum disease, without orthodontic or dental hygiene interventions, and is a precursor for diabetes, obesity and coronary heart disease, it is not an optimal human diet. The diet presented in Nudge Your Health, Step 2: Nourish is a Paleo, low carb and high-fat diet that promotes the most nutritious vegetables, fruits and animal products. Sample concepts from Nudge Your Health, Step 2: Nourish: Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency (affecting more than 2 billion people). Omega-3 fatty acid deficiency is the 6th highest dietary cause of death in America. Chicken isn't the healthiest meat choice. Compared to other meats, it is low in iron (which is the reason it is white) and omega-3 fatty acids. Americans should eat more lamb. It has about 4 times the iron of chicken and 8 times the omega-3s. Being a third-generation, functional medicine physician has allowed Dr. Haggard to study and experiment with an unfathomable number of ways professed to be healthy. These include countless diets, numerous exercise and movement programs, varying degrees of daily activity, dietary supplements, sunlight exposure, stress reduction techniques, detoxification methods, meditation and sleep hygiene. Of all areas of health, nothing is more like a religion than nutrition. However, he is not religious about nutrition, nor does Dr. Haggard ask you to believe his nutritional concepts. He simply presents in Nudge Your Health, Step 2: Nourish the science of nutrition, and what worked best for him and his patients over the last two decades. Dr. Haggard asks you to consider the scientific evidence he presents, try the nutritional strategies that resonate with you and keep track of your results to determine what works best. Many view eating for good health as an on and off switch, either they are on a diet or off a diet. Rather than offering a strict and rigid diet, Nudge Your Health, Step 2: Nourish seeks to meet people where they are at and encourages them to do just a little bit of action each day to be healthier, such as make and enjoy one healthy recipe each day. The first two weeks focus on different ways to prepare vegetable-based meals. The third and final week incorporates high-quality, animal meats in the mostly vegetable meals. It ends with an introduction to various types of fasting. Early success following the program will empower you to keep going and make the program enjoyable. Nudge Your Health, Step 2: Nourish is designed to subtly help you learn and implement more than 30 clinically effective strategies of nutrition therapy for healthy weight loss and preventing or treating common chronic diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, diabetes and heart disease. The step-by-step program includes both conceptual learning with daily written lessons and hands-on learning with shopping for the ingredients, preparing the meals and tracking your results. By the end of the Nudge Your Health, Step 2: Nourish program, you will have an excellent collection of nutritional tools, knowledge and experience that you can use to help you be healthy and better manage your body weight.

Law and Global Health Summary : Current Legal Issues, like its sister volume Current Legal Problems (now available in journal format), is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. Law and Global Health, the sixteenth volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the scholarship examining the relationship between global health and the law. Covering a wide range of areas from all over the world, articles in the volume look at areas of human rights, vulnerable populations, ethical issues, legal responses and governance.

Simpler Summary : Simpler government arrived four years ago. It helped put money in your pocket. It saved hours of your time. It improved your children’s diet, lengthened your life span, and benefited businesses large and small. It did so by issuing fewer regulations, by insisting on smarter regulations, and by eliminating or improving old regulations. Cass R. Sunstein, as administrator of the most powerful White House office you’ve never heard of, oversaw it and explains how it works, why government will never be the same again (thank goodness), and what must happen in the future. Cutting-edge research in behavioral economics has influenced business and politics. Long at the forefront of that research, Sunstein, for three years President Obama’s “regulatory czar” heading the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, oversaw a far-reaching restructuring of America’s regulatory state. In this highly anticipated book, Sunstein pulls back the curtain to show what was done, why Americans are better off as a result, and what the future has in store. The evidence is all around you, and more is coming soon. Simplified mortgages and student loan applications. Scorecards for colleges and universities. Improved labeling of food and energy-efficient appliances and cars. Calories printed on chain restaurant menus. Healthier food in public schools. Backed by historic executive orders ensuring transparency and accountability, simpler government can be found in new initiatives that save money and time, improve health, and lengthen lives. Simpler: The Future of Government will transform what you think government can and should accomplish.
