A few Nudge links Notes for October 16

Main points

Sorry, this is not a set of notes about our discussion. It’s some links to articles about Nudge.

  1. David Brooks, “The Behavioral Revolution,” New York Times, October 28, 2008.
  2. John Cassidy, “Economics: Which Way for Obama?” New York Review of Books, June 12, 2008. It’s about Obama, but it’s a review of Nudge. Hmm. What does he know that we don’t? Cassidy argues that you sometimes need mandates and worries that Obama will go in too much for the libertarian side of this book.
  3. Something to agree on: the Auto IRA, which is exactly what it sounds like.
