“Libertarian paternalism is a relatively weak, soft, and nonintrusive type of paternalism because choices are not blocked, fenced off, or significantly burdened.”
Richard H. Thaler, Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness

“A nudge, as we will use the term, is any aspect of the choice architecture that alters people’s behavior in a predictable way without forbidding any options or significantly changing their economic incentives.”
Richard H. Thaler, Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness

“Real people have trouble with long division if they don’t have a calculator, sometimes forget their spouse’s birthday, and have a hangover on New Year’s Day.”
Richard H. Thaler, Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness
