  • Subtitulo: Improving decisions about health, wealth and happiness


Every day we make decisions: about the things that we buy or the meals we eat; about the investments we make or our children's health and education; even the causes that we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly.

We are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions that make us poorer, less healthy and less happy. And, as Thaler and Sunstein show, no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way. By knowing how people think, we can make it easier for them to choose what is best for them, their families and society. Using dozens of eye-opening examples the authors demonstrate how to nudge us in the right directions, without restricting our freedom of choice. Nudge offers a unique new way of looking at the world for individuals and governments alike.

This is one of the most engaging, provocative and important books you will ever read.

Richard H. Thaler

Richard Thaler é professor de Economia Comportamental na University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Em 2017, foi o vencedor do Prémio Nobel da Economia. Em 2015, tornou-se presidente da American Economic Association. Autor do livro Comportamento Inadequado, Coautor do bestseller NUDGE, com Cass R. Sunstein, e autor de THE WINNERS CURSE: PARADOXES AND ANOMALIES OF ECONOMIC LIFE, Thaler revela-nos, a partir de um confronto com os velhos padrões da Economia tradicional, um olhar singular sobre as fraquezas do ser humano na interseção entre Economia e Psicologia. As implicações desta realidade para os indivíduos, gestores e formuladores de políticas são, pela mão do autor, tão profundas quanto divertidas.
