Behavioral Foundations of Public Policy

 Eldar Shafir, The Behavioral Foundations of Public Policy (Princeton University Press, 2012). 

This collection examines the policy relevance of behavioral science to our social and political lives, to issues ranging from health, environment, and nutrition, to dispute resolution, implicit racism, and false convictions. The book illuminates the relationship between behavioral findings and economic analyses, and calls attention to what policymakers might learn from this vast body of groundbreaking work.
