News Article of the Week
Should Governments Nudge Us to Make Good Choices?
Our decisions are constantly influenced by the way in which they are presented. Over the last few years, governments have begun to nudge people toward better decisions for both themselves and society. For example, research conducted by CDS and colleagues shows that asking people to generate reasons why they should claim Social Security later before making a decision regarding when to claim leads to a delay. In general, a delay in claiming age is often better for those who expect to live longer. The article goes on to discuss the benefits of using choice architecture in government related decisions.
