This is Session Three in our short Head Start course that introduces students to aspects of behavioural economics.

In this lesson we look at behavioural nudges. Can they be effective in persuading us to change our behaviour? Or are stronger forms of government intervention needed in areas of policy concern such as gambling addiction and rising levels of obesity.
