Richard Thaler - Nobel prize for economics 2017.


Behavioural economists rarely win the Nobel prize for economics. Richard Thaler, announced today as the newest such laureate, has joined their number. Mr Thaler is perhaps most famous as a pioneer of “nudging”. This is the use of behavioural insights as a public-policy tool, a practice followed by growing numbers of governments. Mr Thaler’s prize recognises not only his achievements but also the discipline’s newfound importance.
