PROFESSIONAL PROFILE:

 

Cass Sunstein is currently the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard. From 2009 to 2012, he was Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. He is the founder and director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard Law School.

Sunstein has advised government officials in many nations including the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, Ireland, Argentina. The United Arab Emirates, Qatar and India. He has also advised officials at the United Nationsa, the European Commission and the World Bank.

Cass Sunstein was awarded the Holberg Prize for his work in reshaping the relationship between the modern regulatory state and the constitutional law. He is the most cited legal scholar in the US and almost certainly in the world.

Cass Sunstein is author of many articles and books, including Republic.com (2001), Risk and Reason (2002), Why Societies Need Dissent (2003), The Second Bill of Rights (2004), Laws of Fear: Beyond the Precautionary Principle (2005), Worst-Case Scenarios (2001), Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness (with Richard H. Thaler, 2008), Simpler: The Future of Government (2013), #Republic (2017), The Cost-Benefit Revolution (2018), Conformity (2019),How Change Happens (2019) and on Freedom (2019).

Drawing on state-of-the-art work in behavioral psychology and economics and given that "Simplicity" is the key word for nudging, Cass Sunstein, as administrator of the powerful White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), quietly helped save the nation billions of dollars while preventing thousands of deaths and countless illnesses and accidents. All this was accomplished in part through the extraordinary power of nudges—low-cost, seemingly modest policies that preserve freedom of choice. He played a lardge role in initiatives designed to reduce poverty, to spur economic growth, to reduce pollution, to increase safety on the roads and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
