Abstract

Chater and Loewenstein argue that i-frame research has been co-opted by private interests opposed to system-level reform, leading to ineffective interventions. They recommend that behavioural scientists refocus on system-level interventions. We suggest that the influence of private interests on research is highly problematic for wider normative and epistemic reasons. A system-level intervention to shield research from private influence is needed.
