Public Lecture: Richard Thaler in Copenhagen

ISSP and Danish Nudging Network are proud to present professor Richard Thaler on 21 October in Copenhagen.

Thaler is a Ralph and Dorothy Keller Distinguished Service Professor in Behavioural theory and-economics at Chicago Booth, but most notably renowned for, together with Cass Sunstein, having written the book Nudge – Improving decisions about health, wealth and happiness (2008).
On 21 October (The Autumn holiday Friday) at 10:00-12:00 we are able to present a large public lecture with Thaler.

The event will be held at:
The purpose of Thaler’s visit is to increase awareness about the Nudge paradigm amongst the public and policy makers, especially in regards to the preliminary results, the future potentials and the immediate reservations in relation to this.

The Nudge paradigm has already gathered a large following and prevalence in the US and UK. Sunstein is advisor for president Obama’s administration, while Thaler has been special advisor for the British ”Nudge-Unit”, which in recent years has worked on integrating insights from behavioural economics into British health policy.

The event is coordinated by Danish Nudging Network, with ISSP, Kræftens Bekæmpelse, TrygFonden, Mind-Lab, Metropol, University of Southern Denmark, Aalborg University and DEA as leading forces.
