|“Roll over economists. We have always, pridefully, thought of ourselves as the major arbiters of good public policy: take it or leave it based on cost-benefit analysis. The Behavioral Foundations of Public Policy challenges that hegemony. In each interesting chapter–on topics ranging from discrimination and poverty to health, savings, and bureaucracy–the book shows the role of psychology in public policy. Only one word can describe this book: wow!”–George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate in Economics
