A Behavioral Economics Approach to Development

This is an exciting time to be applying behavioral economics to development practice and policy. In fact, much of what is discussed in this video is what I am applying to my work in Kenya with churches. This video explains why designing programs and policies is just as important, if not more important, than what the program or policy ultimately targets. Of course you could just read Thinking Fast and Slow, Poor Economics, Scarcity, Nudge, and a forthcoming essay written by yours truly, but this video will take much less time.
