On Tuesday, Fox News obtained documents showing that the federal government is initiating a program designed to â??nudgeâ?? Americans toward particular behaviors.
The â??Behavioral Insights Teamâ?? to be formed would work with the White House, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture, among others. The document, emailed by White House senior adviser on social and behavioral sciences Maya Shenker to a university professor, states, â??Behavioral sciences can be used to help design public policies that work better, cost less, and help people achieve their goals.â??
Anyone here need to be nudged ?
