Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness by Richard H. Thaler | Conversation Starters
In “Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness”, readers are introduced to the concept of libertarian paternalism through a discussion of human psychology and behavior. The authors propose a unique view of humans that suggests that people do not choose unfailingly well based on the fact that they sometimes employ fallacies and heuristics when solving problems, in addition to being heavily influenced by social interactions.
Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein deliver “Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness” with a bright and clear voice, making the serious lessons in the book approachable to a wide variety of readers. Praised as “engaging and insightful” by the New York Times Book Review, “Nudge” aims to illuminate a new perspective on human behavior and choice.
