A nudge in the right direction: how behavioral economics could make your life easier
Richard H. Thaler is a world-renowned behavioral economist and professor of finance and psychology.. Recently, he was interviewed by The Economist. The discussion covers some of the fundamental studies in the field, like “save more tomorrow” which encourages people to save more by signing up to increase their savings rate every year and auto-enrollment for pensions that have drastically increased employee participation in pension funds.
Thaler also suggests, in the interview, that behavioral economics has the ability to influence human behavior for both good and bad. He argues that much of what behavioral economics does is remove barriers. The goal is not to change people but to make life easier, but that idea can be skewed by organizations or individuals looking to capitalize on the biases of people. Whenever he is asked to sign a copy of his book Nudge, he writes “nudge for good” which is a plea, he says, to improve the lives of people and avoid insidious behavior.
The list of ways companies nudge behavior is endless, and I would love to hear more examples from you all in the comments section.
Los Angeles Is Painting The Streets White, And There’s A Good Reason Why
While some didn’t believe the climate is changing, others are already finding a solution to the challenge. Some of those seeking for solution are those living in Los Angeles, and they are currently thinking of an innovative idea to tackle the heat.
To tackle the extremely high temperature which is about 130-140 degrees on the surface of the road, the Los Angeles resident have started a project to test out the “cool pavement”.
China just switched on the world's largest floating solar power plant
It wasn’t too long ago that China had a reputation as a coal-guzzling, smog-blanketed polluter. But that is changing - and fast.
Today, China invests more each year in wind, hydro and solar power than any other country on earth. This week it further underlined its role as the global leader in renewable energy by switching on the world’s largest floating solar power plant.
The facility is located in the city of Huainan, in China’s eastern Anhui province. It has a capacity of 40 megawatts (MW), enough to power a small town. And in a stroke of pleasing symbolism, the plant floats over a flooded former coal-mining region...
Total global investment in renewables was down last year – but that’s not as bad a thing as it initially sounds.
The cost of getting solar, wind and other green energy projects off the ground has plummeted – so despite the overall drop in investment, 2016 was still a record year in terms of installed capacity. It rose by 17 per cent to 921GW, and the figure including hydro power is over 2,000GW.
In a number of countries, there is new low-carbon energy generation technology going on to the grid at a cheaper rate than both nuclear and fossil fuels.

Wet wipes do not break down as quickly as toilet paper. They lurk in pipes and merge with fat to create huge rock hard fatbergs. Wipes also contain plastics and other man-made materials which persist in the environment.
Even if they say ‘flushable’ they should never go down the toilet. Although they disappear when you flush the loo, they take a number of years to disintegrate.
