Meetup: When Behavioral Economics Backfires

September 12, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
| Fiterman Hall | Rooms 1306-7

Behavioral economics (BE) has changed behavior in a number of domains, from educational achievement to personal finance to environmental conservation. But using BE for the social good is still relatively new, and some well-intentioned and carefully considered interventions have nonetheless backfired.

Dr. Ross O’Hara, Behavioral Researcher from Persistence Plus, will share stories of nudges that went wrong in higher ed. and what that means for future efforts to use BE to help college students succeed.

Please bring a picture ID.

This event is free for all CUNY students, faculty and staff.
