BETA continues its BX2018 podcast series, where we recorded frank and fascinating discussions with speakers at the 2018 Behavioural Exchange Conference.

This episode sees University of Chicago Professor Anuj K. Shah talk about his work looking at the human behaviours underpinning parts of the US justice system.

From nudges to slow down decision-making in youth crime, to reminding people to show up to their court dates – Professor Shah covers some important ground.

Professor Shah also talks about the future of behavioural economics, and how we can move beyond the common nudges used by policymakers around the world.
