2015 EDU: PEOPLE: TKR: Present information in ways that help people use it

Present information in ways that help people use it.
In this excerpt from the event 'Mind, Society and Behaviour' Varun Gauri discusses how redesigning the information and social environment can help people make better decisions about their education, savings, healthcare and other domains of life, as too much information can be overwhelming.

Development economics and policy are due for a redesign. A more realistic understanding of how human beings think and behave can make development policies more effective, and can help development professionals become more aware of their own biases.
