Heavy Chef features the author of Nudge, Professor Cass Sunstein, in an exclusive Livestream, together with Lukhanyo Neer and Louis Janse van Rensburg of the Heavy Chef Foundation in The Nudgers.
Professor Cass Sunstein joins Lukhanyo Neer and Louis Janse van Rensburg, the two research whizzes who head up the Heavy Chef Foundation, to discuss the topic ‘Nudge and Sludge: Past, Present, and Future’. They will be focusing on behaviour and what makes people do what they do. In an era where people are more triggered than ever before, this seems like a good time to talk about it.
Cass R. Sunstein is currently the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard. He is the founder and director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard Law School. In 2018, he received the Holberg Prize from the government of Norway, sometimes described as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for law and the humanities. From 2009 to 2012, he was Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and after that, he served on the President’s Review Board on Intelligence and Communications Technologies and on the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Board. Mr. Sunstein has testified before congressional committees on many subjects, and he has advised officials at the United Nations, the European Commission, the World Bank, and many nations on issues of law and public policy. He serves as an adviser to the Behavioural Insights Team in the United Kingdom.
