Behavioural science for smart regulators (update)

Complianceforregulators.com is, according to its self-presentation, "a one-stop source for regulators seeking information, inspiration and empowerment, in pursuit of compliance." It is managed by Telita Snyckers-Nørgaard, an experienced management consultant. She has recently posted an interesting analysis of compliance under the catchy title "From the psychologist's couch: 16 concepts that (probably) motivate the people we regulate." It seems to draw from behavioural economics which is now a required input for regulators. See also our posts on the importance of behaviour study for EU smart regulation, and nudging regulatory technique. To discover "the ostrich effect" or the "'hyperbolic discounting", follow the link above. Consultant-speak or something for smart regulators?
