Extract from the back cover
The effectiveness of public action is a growing concern for the authorities, who are increasingly calling on the results of economic science research. The contribution of economics to the development of public policies lies in its ability to analyse and understand the way in which economic actors react to changes in the decision-making environment.. This reasoning is based on strong behavioural assumptions, which are the focus of a recent stream of research, behavioural economics, combining psychology and economics in order to refine the understanding of the determinants of decisions.
This book provides an overview of the contributions of this new trend of behavioral research to the definition and evaluation of public policies. It describes new intervention tools, such as nudges, while highlighting the relevance of traditional intervention tools, with applications to health economics, savings and retirement choices, environmental policy and labour market regulation.
Yannick Gabuthy is Professor of Economics at the University of Lorraine. His research interests lie mainly in the field of law and economics, with a particular focus on litigation and conflict resolution.
