Bovens, Luc (2010) Nudges and cultural variance: a note on Selinger and Whyte. Knowledge, technology & policy, 23 (3-4). pp. 483-486. ISSN 0897-1986
Selinger and Whyte argue that Thaler and Sunstein are insufficiently sensitive to cultural variance in Nudge. I construct a taxonomy of the various roles that cultural variance may play in nudges. First, biases that are exploited in nudging may interact with features that are culturally specific. Second, cultures may be more or less susceptible to certain biases. Third, cultures may resolve conflicting biases in different ways. And finally, nudge may be enlisted for different aims in different cultures.
