Recent behavioural science and policy links November 2nd

Like a lot of people, am thinking about how to proceed with social media. For now, am going to go back to basics and use the blog here to update on anything particularly interesting I see emerging in our areas. 

1. Michael Muthukrishna points to a really useful new measure of cultural distance between regions. 

2. From last year and open access, Nancy Cartwright's paper on rigour versus the need for evidential diversity is very thought-provoking. In general our literatures should engage more directly with her thinking in this regard. 

3. New paper by Leo Lades and Federica Nova Ethical Considerations when using Behavioural Insights to Reduce Peoples Meat Consumption Interesting use of our FORGOOD behavioural ethics framework.

4. The President’s Initiative on Junk Fees and Related Pricing Practices. Fascinating new initiative and one that we will add to reading groups in this area. 

5. Details of the 15th annual Irish economics, psychology, and policy workshop available here
