Rules for behavioral science:
I recently had a correspondence published in Nature on rules that policy makers should consider when utilizing the tools of economic science to back up policy initiatives. Such rules are particularly important today in light of the recent (Sept 2015) Executive Order -- "Using Behavioral Science Insights to Better Serve the American People" passed by the Obama Administration.
