Past week’s tweet summarized #18 #WeekVanWilteInTweets

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.

Backfire effect
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

YANSS 095 – How to fight back against the backfire effect

Why cartoons have 4 fingers
But not in Japan

Wendy’s
Pretty good webcare!

Baseball
New MLB season has started. Can the Cubs defend their title? Two tweets unrelated to the new season, but cool takes on baseball.
