Lecture by Todd Rogers RI '20

Free and open to the public.


While at Radcliffe, Todd Rogers intends to study what leads to the diffusion and widespread adoption of welfare-enhancing innovations and practices, especially those leveraging behavioral insights. This research naturally follows from his work over the past two decades in the area of behavioral policy. The end product will likely help scholars and practitioners design, identify, and invest in welfare-enhancing innovations that are especially likely to successfully scale.
