Breaking the Silence: Can Behavioral Science Confront Structural Racism? - By Crystal C. Hall & Mindy Hernandez - Behavioral Scientist

"As a field, we have failed to account for structural racism in our designs and interventions because the challenge feels too big for our tools and methods."

— Crystal Hall & Mindy Hernandez in Breaking the Silence: Can Behavioral Science Confront Structural Racism?

For too long, the field of behavioral science has confused its limitations with powerlessness in regards to structural racism.

Are Repeat Nudges Effective? For Tardy Tax Filers, It Seems So - By Nicole Robitaille, Nina Mažar, & Julian House Behavioral Scientist

What do you think happens when the same nudge is deployed more than once—more effective, less, or about the same? Nicole Robitaille, Nina Mažar, and Julian House have some answers from their work on nudging organizations.

We don’t have a great understanding of how long nudges last or how effective they are if repeated. An experimental tax-paying prompt aimed at organizations provides new insight into these questions.

We don’t have temporal aspects of nudging dialed in yet. How long do nudges last? What happens if you do the same nudge ...

Are Repeat Nudges Effective? For Tardy Tax Filers, It Seems So - By Nicole Robitaille, Nina Mažar, & Julian House Behavioral Scientist

We don’t have temporal aspects of nudging dialed in yet. How long do nudges last? What happens if you do the same nudge twice? Insights from a tax planning prompt shed some light on these necessary questions.

We don’t have a great understanding of how long nudges last or how effective they are if repeated. An experimental tax-paying prompt aimed at organizations provides new insight into these questions.

A Conversation with Daniel Kahneman About “Noise” - By Evan Nesterak - Behavioral Scientist

This week we're in conversation with Daniel Kahneman about his new book "Noise." We cover what noise is and how it differs from bias, how we can measure and deal with noise, and some of noise’s nuances.

Ten years on from "Thinking Fast and Slow", Kahneman is back with a new book, Noise, that will again have you questioning what you thought you knew about making decisions.

India’s Digital Samaritans: Can Social Media Be a Force for Good? - by Sakshi Ghai & Amy Orben - Behavioral Scientist

“How can we—social media users, behavioral scientists, technology companies, policymakers—work together to harness the power of social media for good, especially during humanitarian crises?” ask Sakshi Ghai and Amy Orben this week.

The prevailing public and media narrative about social media has often focused on the negatives. Yet social media platforms have proved crucial during India’s COVID-19 crisis. Here’s how we can make sense of it all.

"We have to accept that wherever there is judgment, there is noise. Just as you would want to reduce bias—even if you cannot completely eliminate it—reducing noise is a good thing. It improves accuracy." — Daniel Kahneman

Ten years on from "Thinking Fast and Slow", Kahneman is back with a new book, Noise, that will again have you questioning what you thought you knew about making decisions.

"I’ve been studying bias all my life, but a few years ago encountered an instance of noise, and I was very impressed both by how much noise there was...and mostly I was impressed by how little people knew about it." — Daniel Kahneman

India’s Digital Samaritans: Can Social Media Be a Force for Good? - by Sakshi Ghai & Amy Orben - Behavioral Scientist

Reflecting on the role social media has played in India's response to the COVID crisis, Sakshi Ghai and Amy Orben encourage us to ask a new question about social media use: “how can we—social media users, behavioral scientists, technology companies, policymakers—work together to harness the power of social media for good, especially during humanitarian crises?”

"Anchoring" Found in the wild:
Hello, dear friends! I am studying at Kyiv School of Economics, Ukraine. Could you help me, please? =)) Could you fill out a simple anonymous quiz that takes less than 2 minutes with 5 questions?)) Together with Andrew Tarasenko and Anton Liutov, we are conducting a simple economic experiment at Kyiv School Economics. The purpose is checking how different circumstances influence a person decision-making. In order to get acquainted with the economic quiz, I ask you to follow the link listed below. https://goo.gl/uFNmqK. Thank you in advance for participating and promoting the behavioral economics :))
