My tweets from the past week, installment #18 [I did #9 twice…], with: nudge for good, FCA, Backfire effect, Why cartoons have four fingers, Baseball, and good webcare.
Nudge for good
One day of OECD conference is on ethics of nudges. (To be honest: the other conference day looks more interesting)
Famous Evil Nudge
FCA on advertising
Interesting paper by the Financial Conduct Authority on behavioral economics and financial advertisements.
Great podcast series, in 3 intallments. Why do rational arguments not convince people and make them change their position/opinion? When exposed to findings contrary to their own beliefs, people will engage in motivated reasoning. If facts conform, not so much. Not much effort put into finding the counterfactual. Nice test on critical thinking: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/07/03/upshot/a-quick-puzzle-to-test-your-problem-solving.html?_r=1
Why cartoons have 4 fingers
But not in Japan
Pretty good webcare!
New MLB season has started. Can the Cubs defend their title? Two tweets unrelated to the new season, but cool takes on baseball.
