One of David Cameron’s first actions after being elected as Prime Minister was to bring in Thaler and Sundsteins Nudge Theory to help create his Libertarian Paternalistic “Big Society”
The former Prime Minister was speaking at the launch of the Fore Trust, a new grant-making body for small charities
Nudge theory for life, education, behaviour, diets, economics and more. Click here for nudge theory fully defined and explained in practice with examples.
Governments have experimented with "nudging" us into better public behaviour. But a new book by a proponent of the theory, underlines growing doubts
Choice architecture was the answer when governments wanted citizens to behave in ways that benefited them, but didn't want to be seen to be telling them what to do or how to live. The Nudge theory has come to impact on millions of our day-to-day decisions on a subconscious level. But the row over Theresa May's 'hostile environment' shows what happens when Nudge theory goes dark.

The news about a pilot of the social credit system (社会信用体系 shèhuì xìnyòng tǐxì) introduced in China this spring thrilled the Western world. But some elements of social scoring are already used in western hemisphere’s financial industry - in the interest of all of us.
YOUNG people struggling to access financial services due to a lack of a credit rating can sign up to have their entire digital lives ranked to see if they are deemed worthy of a loan.
Credit scores have a long history of prejudice.

Imagine visiting your elderly mum and getting free soap as a reward. Or dropping litter and being banned from buying a train ticket. In China, the state is using a combination of cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned values to rate behaviour.
If we look at the working model of China’s social scoring, we can see that this is being used to control people’s ability to travel, to buy and sell goods. This will ultimately lead us to a situation where there will be a disenfranchised underclass completely at the mercy of the state, aided and abetted by the social media giants. What you do and say, your opinions, thoughts, actions, and anything you do on social media could ultimately have a disastrous and permanent effect on your life. It is, in effect a form of social cleansing.

We have 401k in America, they started off being voluntary and now mandatory with zero choices where you want your money invested. We pay hefty Social Security payments from our paychecks. Now they are considered an entitlement. We should all be grateful for the government to take our money. 🙄
Wallstreet takes 401k money to invest, and I can tell you my mother lost everything under Bush. Obama bailed them out, nobody helping my 75-year-old mother that still has to work to pay her property taxes with double knee replacements.
The monsters will quickly take over the young Me, XY and Z generations, what a sad place that will be. These youngsters are looking forward to the free generation, but as we all know, nothing in life is free.
Thank you, Kitty, fantastic research! 🌸😎😘
