      That is a bit huge. Thanks

    Interesting topic, but I thought the essay was missing the information that I expected to receive given the title and introduction.

    I’d like to come away from this article with a clearer understanding of nudge theory, which seems quite interesting in and of itself. I’d like a clearer explanation of the theory and a stronger case made for it given the supporting studies that are referenced (the Caroll and Demski & Capstick studies).

    I’d also like to come away with more information about its application to this issue. The essay references an OECD study, but I’d like to learn more about that study and how it explicitly supports nudge theory. Exploring the space of future work in this area for the reader would entice the reader into keeping tabs on the topic for the future, as well.

      Agreed, I was really excited to read this article, especially considering that NPR’s Planet Money just had a great piece on Thaler and Nudge Theory… but I feel this piece sort of meanders off with little acknowledgement of how behavioral economics will actually influence this problem.
