This book gives many examples of how the design of public policies in Singapore integrated classical economic principles with the emerging insights from behavioural economics. The synthesis of economic and psychological approaches exemplifies Singapore's purposeful experimentation and innovation in public policy. -- Professor Neo Boon Siong "Nanyang Business School, NTU, lead author of the best-selling book, Dynamic Governance"
This stimulating book clearly describes the relevance of the behavioural economics perspective to important policy debates and demonstrates the value that it adds to policy design and outcomes. Policymakers around the world will learn a lot from the real world policy applications described in the book. -- Dr David Skilling "Director, Landfall Strategy Group, Fellow of the Civil Service College, Singapore"
This book is a succinct collection and articulation of behavioural economics applied in public policy. It is also one of the best primers on the subject and an essential read for all government and business leaders. -- Samuel M Lam "President, Linkage Asia"
This book will provide a springboard for future collaborations between researchers and policymakers in the Singapore Civil Service, and it is a 'must read' for anyone interested in Singapore's public policies. -- Professor David Chan "Director of Behavioural Sciences Institute, Singapore Management University"
