Nudging Government, a book talk by Robert Walmsley University Professor Cass R. Sunstein. This talk also celebrates Professor Sunstein’s book Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness (Yale Univ. Press 2008) with special tribute to his co-author Richard H. Thaler for his award by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the 2017 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. 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. Thaler’s award was in part due to his pioneering work with Sunstein on “nudges,” including his co-authorship of Nudge. http://hlsscholar.wpengine.com/?page_id=117
