Can simply separating and labelling someone’s income, or including some extra information in a quarterly report help them to save for retirement?

Listen to Professor Dilip Soman’s journey from the shop floor of an engineering firm, to helping people in Mexico and rural India save more for retirement in BETA’s latest podcast

Professor Soman is from the Centre of Behavioural Economics in Action at Rotman, or ‘BEAR’ at the University of Toronto. He also talks about how machine learning and artificial intelligence will play a huge role in the future of behavioural economics.

This is the latest in BETA’s BX2018 podcast series, where we delved into the work and journeys of speakers at the 2018 Behavioural Exchange Conference.
