On Tuesday 28 March, IPAA ACT and the Behavioural Economics Team of the Australian Government (BETA) hosted behavioural economics’ global star Professor Sendhil Mullainathan, rising young academic Assistant Professor Ziad Obermeyer and Professor Brigitte Madrian. In his first visit to Australia, Sendhil presented on predictive policy – how it can solve some of society’s most difficult problems and why it matters to government policy making. His research is paving the way in solving social problems with behavioural economics, relevant for all policy makers and public servants.
