ESA National Economic Panel Polls
Behavioural economics - September 2016
Part 1: "Behavioural economics provides new and useful insights into individual behaviour."
Part 2: "It is unethical for governments to use behavioural economics to "nudge" citizens."
In 2016, both the most recent Presidents of the American Economic Association are behavioural economists, and in the USA, UK and now Australia, governments are looking to harness insights from behavioural economics when designing policies. The result of this poll reflects this evolution.
