PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the tags #BehavioralEconomics#Nudge, and #DYK on Twitter and other social media platforms, where the OECD will be releasing information for the launch of the publication Behavioural Insights and Public Policy: Lessons from Around the World. Click to find out more on the launch.


The OECD has been working at the forefront to understand how behavioural insights can help governments and regulators design policies in such a way that citizens make better decisions and actions for themselves.

 

Behavioural Insights and New Approaches to Policy Design seminar was held on 23 January 2015 at the OECD, bringing together more than 150 distinguished participants at the forefront of behavioural economics including central and local government officials, regulators, staff of International organisations and academics to discuss the challenges and opportunities of applying behavioural insights to policy making.

Behavioural Economics

WHAT IS BEHAVIOURAL ECONOMICS?

 

Behavioural economics is the study of economic decision making and activity. Why do people make certain actions and how do they act in certain situations? This can range from the selection of product brands, to big decisions such as understanding why some people have health insurance, pensions and make health decisions. 

 

REPORTS

 

 

 

In the past five years, behavioural economics has been rapidly propelled from the margins of economic policy analysis towards the policy mainstream. Its increased application is helping countries across the world to regulate better based on actual, and not assumed, behaviour.

 

The use of behavioural economics by governments and regulators is a growing trend globally, most notably in the United Kingdom and United States but more recently in Australia, Canada, Columbia, Denmark, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey and the European Union.
